Nurses’ Health Matters

The nursing profession has a problem: Millions of us, charged with taking care of the nation’s people, come to work chronically fatigued. Studies have shown that 30% of new graduate RN’s leave bedside nursing in the first year, and 57% leave in the second year.



One Practical Solution

Not only does fatigue impact our work life, it also affects our life outside of work—our time spent with family, friends, and ourselves. We all want to have more energy and happiness and to enjoy our professional and personal lives more.

We believe that the Transcendental Meditation program is a must for nurses. Nurse fatigue and burnout is a major problem which can dramatically impact quality of life. This is why it’s so beneficial for you to practice the TM technique.

What is TM

The TM practice is unique among meditation techniques, distinguished by its simplicity and profound, immediate results. It’s not a religion or philosophy and involves no change in lifestyle. It’s easy to learn and enjoyable to practice, requiring no effort, concentration, or special skills.


Continuing Education

The TM program has been approved by the American Holistic Nurses Association for 23 ANCC contact hours and 2 university credits.

TM Program for Nurses: Nourishing the Caregiver Within

How Nurses Benefit from TM

You can’t pour from an empty cup. You started nursing filled with energy and enthusiasm, but the stress of nursing may now have reduced your resilience and compassion. In fact, statistics show that over 40 percent of hospital staff nurses experience nurse burnout, characterized by exhaustion, compassion fatigue, and physical and mental stress.

Chronic stress has a deleterious effect on the entire physiology, including the brain. The TM practice is associated with lower cortisol levels, and is the only meditation that shows increases in broadband intra and inter-hemispheric EEG coherence. Other beneficial effects of the TM technique include a reduction in high blood pressure after only a few weeks of regular practice, decreased risk of myocardial infarction and stroke, and normalization of components of the metabolic syndrome (including systolic blood pressure and insulin resistance). Read more about the health benefits of TM.

Happier Nurses, Healthier Patients

Researchers based at Sarasota Memorial Hospital found clear statistical evidence that the TM technique can increase resilience and compassion satisfaction among nurses while decreasing burnout and secondary traumatic stress. The results of this study were presented at the ANCC Magnet Conference in 2016, as well as the Florida Association of Nurse Executives and the American Holistic Nurses Association National Conference.

Partnering with the ANA’s Healthy Nurse, Healthy Nation campaign

TM for Nurses is proud to be working with the American Nurses Association and the Healthy Nurse, Healthy Nation campaign to bring about healthy changes in the nursing community. The Healthy Nurse, Healthy Nation campaign encourages you to put your health first by concentrating on a holistic approach to wellness. The Transcendental Meditation technique should be a key component of that approach.
