Secondary Stress in Nurse Educators

Teaching and Learning in Nursing Volume 12, Number 3, ISSN 1557-3087 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


The topic of nurse educator secondary stress is significant to the nurse educator community, which is facing a national nurse faculty shortage crisis. Major factors identified as contributing to the shortage of nurse educators are educator dissatisfaction with workload and burnout. Burnout can lead to secondary stress, which is an area that has not been well researched in nurse educators. The effects of secondary stress in nurse educators may contribute to job dissatisfaction, and the identification of secondary stress and methods to cope with its effects may be important for nurse educator retention during this critical time of educator shortage.
