Job Satisfaction in NursingIntroduction to Three Good Things InterventionOne of the most stressful professions in the world is nursing, specifically, ICU nursing. It is known that there is an increase in burnout, job dissatisfaction and PTSD in ICU nurses. There is a massive need to increase resilience in this type of nursing to make sure there is adequate staffing to safely take care of patients.

There are five factors that help nurses remain resilient. Those five factors include“building positive professional relationships through networks and mentoring maintaining positivity through laughter, optimism, and positive emotions, developing the emotional insight to understand one's own risk and protective factors, achieving work life balance and using spirituality to give one's life meaning and coherence and finally becoming more reflective” (Rippstein-Leuenberger, K., Mauthner, O., Sexton, J.

If one were thinking positive, you will feel happier when leaving work instead of how you normally feeling stressed.The StudyThe study was conducted using the thematic analysis (TA) which analyzed statements given by the participants.
