Abstract

Stress is a well-recognized phenomenon in the nursing profession, particularly for new nurses. This study (a) assessed nurse residents' experience with a stress management program and (b) informed adjustments to the program. Analysis of qualitative data revealed three themes: (a) enhanced personal and professional development, (b) sensitivity to learner needs, and (c) fostering the principles of mindfulness. A stress management program has the potential to positively enhance the new nurse's transition to work.
