This capstone project discusses an eight-week Mindfulness Meditation Program for nursing students. It can be implemented virtually or face-to-face in either the didactic or clinical portion of a course. This capstone project was implemented virtually. The purpose of the project is to introduce mindfulness meditation to nursing students to build resilience and reduce stress. The weekly topics include: Orientation, Being Fully Present, Responding Mindfully Without Judgment, Communication, Teamwork, Compassion, Balanced Life, and Closure. Pre- and post-assessments of anxiety, stress, and mindfulness are evaluated with the Burn Anxiety Inventory (BAI), Perceived Stress Scale (PSS-10), and Mindfulness Attention Awareness Scale (MAAS). Mindfulness Meditation prepares nursing students to be more self-aware, to respond instead of react, and deliver compassionate and nonjudgmental nursing care.
