Work and Wellbeing Survey Results - 2021
RNAO’s Work and Wellbeing Survey Results tells the story of nurses and a nursing workforce under considerable stress and strain as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
While all nurses have been affected by the pandemic, how they experience levels of stress and strain are as unique as the nurses themselves as they struggle with job demands and their own life circumstances.
The survey results point to the need for better supports for nurses – particularly from government and employers – as they attempt to manage the impacts of the pandemic, both at work and at home. While virtually no one claims to have escaped the impacts of the pandemic, the survey results reveals certain sectors of the health system, domains of practice and age cohorts are under particular strain.
