Purpose: An exploration of various resilience training programs to determine if there is a significant impact on the psychological resilience of health care professionals.
Method: An electronic systematic review using San Jose State University’s OneSearch database search engine was completed. The review contains published research articles between 2011-2022. Nine published articles were reviewed and used for this systematic review.
Results: There is limited data related to resilience training and resources in accredited nursing programs. Resilience training programs are both a feasible and acceptable way of building psychological resilience among interdisciplinary health care professionals.
Conclusion: Mindfulness-based resilience training programs can be feasibly implemented and build psychological resilience among interdisciplinary health care professionals throughout the career span. These programs should be implemented beginning with nursing program curricula and throughout the career by being integrated within established programs or staff meetings. Successful implementation of these programs has the potential to significantly strengthen psychological resilience and improve the quality of life of health care professionals, their patients, and communities.
