Secondary stress is that extra level of stress specifically related to the demands of nursing care provided to patients and families in today’s health care system. Nurses are no strangers to the threat and reality of secondary stress as a condition of caring for others.   The current pandemic, however, has exacerbated and intensified this stress and the burnout that follows.
