Help a Nurse Recover from Burnout and Nurse-Specific PTSD

The Haelan Academy is a nonprofit organization that brings education and recovery services to nurses who are experiencing traumatization and burnout worldwide.

By 2030, the world will have just over half the number of nurses it needs. We are experiencing a global nursing crisis. At the core of this crisis is the silent epidemic of nurse-specific traumatization, which is driving nurses from the profession:
  • Nearly 1 in 4 nurses meet the diagnostic criteria for PTSD.
  • 91% of nurses report one or more PTSD symptom.
  • 83% of nurses report being burned out.
  • 1 in 4 new graduate or early career nurses leave the profession before they are established in practice.
If nurses are not safe, healthy, and well, it has a direct and negative impact upon patient safety, quality of care, and outcomes.
To be clear, untreated nurse-specific traumatization is the root cause of the global nursing crisis. It’s not “just” burnout.
My name is Dr. Lorre Laws (PhD RN) and I conducted over five years of research across four disciplines to bring forth an evidence-based framework and programs to help nurses to insulate themselves from the broken healthcare system and recover from all that they’ve endured.
I self-funded my own research (over six years of time and over six figures of investment). It was necessary to self-fund to ensure that I could meet nurses in their living spaces with unbiased education, resources, and evidence-based healing strategies. There are no governmental, academic, or corporate interest pulling the strings.
This is heart-centered healing work. I am donating my expertise to my nonprofit organization, The Haelan Academy. I am committed to doing my part to address the nursing crisis and facilitate healing for nurses who are suffering.
Your donation will help us to develop and deliver The Break Up with Burnout Academy for Nurses and offer scholarships to student and early career nurses.
The Haelan Academy is recognized by the IRS as a 501c3 nonprofit.
Thank you for your donation. Know that you are making a difference in the life of a nurse, and contributing to improved patient outcomes, safety, and quality of care.
