Feedback from past participants

I enjoyed the resiliency portion of the program the most. It's refreshing to know that it's pretty normal to feel overwhelmed, anxious, etc, and discuss coping mechanisms for that!

I really enjoyed the resiliency modules. I started the IONRP as a nurse with two years of experience. Even though I wasn't a brand-new nurse, I learned a lot of information I wish I would have had as a new nurse during the COVID pandemic, when my self-care could have been much better.

The burnout help was literally life changing and saved my job.  I was extremely close to quitting due to the extreme exhaustion.

The program pushes resiliency, which I now know is imperative in the nursing profession.
