How Should Christian Nurses Respond to COVID Burnout?

by Scott Long, MS, RN, AGACNP-BC, CCRN

Nurse caring for a child in hospitalCritical care is a job that I have felt called to since day one of nursing school and have since expanded my skills to an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner in the Intensive Care Unit. I have felt blessed and honored to be a person whom God has given an ability to provide comfort to patients and/or families. This is a stressful job that can be rewarding but also leave you walking out of work crying alone or in a co-worker’s arm. The COVID-19 pandemic has added even more to stress, anxiety, and even burnout, but that is where we need a strong support system of people. We can confide in others but, ultimately, we can get so tied up with our professional occupation and keeping up on the most up-to-date information that we lose time with God. If there is anything we need to do more than ever is to spend time in God’s Word and prayer to provide us with spiritual and mental strength through life’s storms personally and professionally.

Over the last 18 months, we have watched COVID-19 grow from what at first was distant, unless you lived in China, where it all started. This virus spread increased in size and its impact became evidently clear as it deprived hospitals of critical care beds in certain areas to even have the U.S. Navy deploy the hospital ships to Los Angeles and New York City as well as Samaritan’s Purse deploying a Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) to set up field hospitals in Central Park and in Italy to allow an opportunity to expand the access of critical care capabilities. Now we see the Delta variant stretching healthcare, hospitals at capacity with not just COVID but in general higher acuity patients. It feels we are continuing in disaster response status. As Christian health workers, what should be our perspective and response at this time and how can we help reduce burnout among nurses?
