topic! Why Emotions Matter: Age, Agitation, and Burnout among Registered Nurses
considers how the experience of burnout relates to the nursing shortage and examines the scope of nurses’ emotional experiences. Authors Erickson and Grove contend that these experiences may be particularly consequential for understanding higher levels of burnout reported by younger nurses. Their study demonstrated that nurses younger than 30 years of age were more likely to experience feelings of agitation and less likely to engage in techniques to manage these feelings. Erickson and Grove discuss the need for awareness of emotional demands facing today’s nursing workforce and the need for experienced nurses to serve as emotional mentors to those entering the profession.
