Registered Nurses (RNs) provide high quality care that is culturally sensitive, competent, and developmentally appropriate within evolving health care working environments where limited resources and increasing responsibilities are common (Khamisa, Oldenburg, Peltzer, & Ilic, 2015). An imbalance between providing high quality care and coping with the working environment can lead to increased work-related stress and burnout. Work-related stress is defined as a harmful emotional and somatic response when the persons’ skills and resources cannot satisfy the requirement of the task (Qi, et al., 2014). This project analyzed self-reported stress among RNs who work on the Acute Care Unit (ACU) of HaysMed measured by the Nursing Stress Scale (NSS) (Gray-Toft & Anderson, 1981). Using the surveys’ statistically significant results, activities were selected. Currently RN led change projects are being implemented to address the research findings.
