RESILIENT NURSES - Episodes 5 & 6 Available!

Since 2014, CCI has sponsored RESILIENT NURSES, a public radio documentary series heard on more than 78 NPR stations, nationwide on SiriusXM satellite radio, and downloaded more than 11,000 times.

Throughout the series, award-winning producer David Freudberg, takes a no-holds-barred look at the challenges faced by those in the nursing profession, RN burnout, and the many ways some nurses are harnessing the power of mindfulness and resilience to fight it. Episodes 1 through 4 are available here.

Now, in two additional productions, Freudberg examines nursing’s future, and how nursing schools like UVA’s are preparing new nurses for the difficult, if exhilarating journey ahead.


Got resilience? Why teaching clinicians to be mindful and resilient makes for more compassionate, safer, higher quality care -- and how the Compassionate Care Initiative does it. Watch our new video to learn more.

She wishes to be an advocate for mental health promotion and resiliency among her peers.  She is a practitioner of mindfulness and meditation and believes in a well-balanced and active lifestyle.
