This article addresses the concept of nurse workplace resilience, its related factors, and recommendations to achieve work life balance. Resilience is a dynamic process that individuals who are in adversity can overcome the stress via coping abilities. The rapid advancement in medical science and complexity of healthcare environment results in increased psycho-physical stress and job burden among healthcare professionals. Nurses are front-line care providers who constantly deliver accurate and prompt patients' and families' care needs. Nurses' professional responsibilities include not only quality care procedures and administrative works, but on-the-job continuing educations to advance career development. The nurses' resilience toward work is closely connected to factors leading to burnout that resulted in resignation. Two factors that can critically affect employees' resilience: inside factors (e.g., individual's characteristics) and outside factors (e.g., work environment, working situation). Nurse administrators and leaders must design educational programs to include problem resolution skills and mindfulness-based management, and that build organizational supportive resources for nurses.
