A unique collaborative study on hospital clinician wellbeing by teams at 60 of the nation’s best hospitals, defined by Magnet Hospital Recognition, was published today in JAMA Health Forum. The study found that physicians and nurses, even at hospitals known to be good places to work, experienced adverse outcomes during the pandemic and want hospital management to make significant improvements in their work environments and in patient safety. The solutions to high hospital clinician burnout and turnover, they say, are not resilience training for clinicians to better cope with adverse working conditions but organizational improvements that provide safe workloads and better work-life balance.
In April 2023, David (Hyunmin) Yu, MSN, RN, AGACNP-BC, CCRN, TCRN, Nurse Practitioner in the PPMC Medical Intensive Care Unit, was invited to Seoul, South Korea, to speak at the largest national critical care medicine conference in South Korea, organized by the Korean Society of Critical Care Medicine.

Reaffirming Our Commitment to Diversity and Equity
The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to rule against affirmative action, thereby striking down the ability of schools to consider race as part of the admissions process, does not negate the need to continue building a nursing workforce as diverse as the people our health care institutions serve.
Today’s ruling does not diminish our commitment to educating a diverse nursing workforce that is critical to ensuring quality health care and promoting health for everyone, everywhere. Penn Nursing remains steadfast in its mission to promote equity, advance science, demonstrate practice excellence, and prepare leaders—from all walks of life—in the discipline of nursing.
