Stress and burnout in the nursing profession present challenges for organizations despite attempts to improve overall wellness. Literature suggests that mindfulness-based interventions are an effective way to address stress and burnout. This quality improvement (QI) project aimed to reduce perceived stress and burnout and increase joy in work among members of a nursing leadership team at a northeast Florida health system. This project utilized the Knowledge to Action (KTA) framework to implement the project and the Utrecht Work Engagement Scale (UWES-9) and the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) to assess outcome measures. The free eight-week online mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) program demonstrated one way that nursing leaders could reduce stress, burnout, and increase joy in work. The findings of this project provide a roadmap to guide future projects, which may include staff nurses and other allied health staff.
