Article #1: Generating Gratitude in the Workplace to Improve Faculty Job Satisfaction Authors: Amy Stegen, MSN, RN; and Jamie Wankier, MSN, RN Citation: Stegen, A., & Wankier, J. (2018). Generating Gratitude in the Workplace to Improve Faculty Job Satisfaction. Journal of Nursing Education, 57 (6), 375-378. doi:10.3928/01484834- 20180522-10 Abstract: Background: The current nursing shortage affects all settings. In an effort to promote retention of nursing faculty, an “attitude of gratitude” was cultivated to improve job satisfaction and increase collaboration in one school of nursing. Method: This was a quantitative study using a convenience sample of faculty at one school of nursing. A pre survey of faculty on perceived gratitude levels and job satisfaction was administered prior to the start of the school year. Multiple gratitude interventions were implemented throughout the year and a post survey was administered to measure the effectiveness of interventions.
Job Satisfaction in Nursing Results: The findings of this study show an improvement of 17.9% in overall job satisfaction, which is consistent with other studies on the topic. Collaboration was not affected by gratitude interventions. Conclusion: Implementing gratitude is a cost-effective and easy way to improve job satisfaction to increase faculty retention rates.

B., & Schwendimann, R. (2017). A qualitative analysis of the Three Good Things intervention in healthcare workers. BMJ Open, 7 (5). doi:10.1136/bmjopen-2017-015826 Abstract: Background: Intensive care unit (ICU) personnel have an elevated prevalence of job- related burn-out and post-traumatic stress disorder, which can ultimately impact patient care. To strengthen healthcare workers’ skills to deal with stressful events, it is important to focus not only on minimising suffering but also on increasing happiness, as this entails many more benefits than simply feeling good. Thus, the purpose of this study was to explore the content of the ‘good things’ reported by healthcare workers participating in the ‘Three Good Things’ intervention.
