Resiliency Training gave me renewed energy, saved my career and allowed me to provide better care for my patients.  Beth L. RN

I have reached a point in my career where I felt it is definitely vital to my heart (and my work) that I take care of myself and the secondary trauma I face!  Christy E.

My advice to anyone looking to attend nursing school is that if your nursing program does not offer VitalHeart's Training, find another program.      Linda C. PA

Physician stress and burnout is an everyday occurrence in my hospital which leads to mistakes being made. Resiliency training should be mandatory for everyone working in patient care.  Jonathan P. MD, Neurologist 

Days filled with treating cancer patients has taken its toll on my body, mind and soul. Prior to attending the resiliency training, I contemplated leaving medicine. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to attend resiliency training with some of the best physicians in the business.                       Paul R. MD, Oncologist

With so many of my colleagues suffering from stress, depression and burnout, you would think that our hospital administration would take notice and appropriate action.  Carl T. MD, Orthopedic Surgeon

If you don't think that COVID19 rocked our world and caused us all to pause and rethink our career choice, THINK AGAIN.  Kate W. RN, Emergency Care

Our hospital claims they fully understand and are addressing doctor and nurse burnout. I can tell you first hand that is not the case. The programs they offer us are only a way to make themselves feel like they are helping and on our side! It is a shame to see so many great doctors and nurses being treated this way.  Kimberly H. NP, MBA, Head of Nursing

I became a doctor to help people. I became a Pediatric Cardiologist to help children with the rarest heart conditions have a better life as they hopefully grow old. Watching the strength and will to live in many of my patients is inspiring but takes a significant toll on me.

Donald N. MD, PhD, MBA, Pediatric Cardiologist
