Nurse Burnout: Mike Ackerman of The Ohio State University College of Nursing

On this episode of The Handoff, Dan speaks with Mike Ackerman, the Director of the Master in Healthcare Innovation Program and a Professor of Clinical Nursing at The Ohio State University. One of Mike’s passions is promoting mental health and wellness among nurses, and they discussed a variety of different topics related to nurse burnout. Mike shared what Ohio State is doing to help its nursing students maintain their mental health, and how they integrate the concept of “live well” into their courses. He highlighted the role that the EMR has had in clinician burnout and his thoughts on the bill that’s working its way through the Ohio state legislature to end mandatory overtime for nurses. Mike also discussed why he doesn’t like the word “burnout,” how the healthcare industry needs to look more at systems than individuals when seeking to find solutions, and how he thinks the current COVID-19 crisis will impact nurses.
