Introduction Research has found that mindfulness practice may reduce anxiety, depression and protect health professionals against work-related stress and burnout. A related question is how mindfulness is related to empathy and emotion regulation. In this study we explore the relationship between the mindfulness profile with stress, burnout, empathy and emotion regulation in a sample of Italian nurses. Method A sample of 42 nurses working in emergency room in different hospitals in the north of Italy, completed the Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ), the Interpersonal Reactivity Index (IRI), the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI), the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ) and the Difficulties in Emotional Regulation Scale (DERS). Results Nurses who have a higher level of “acting with awareness” and “non-judging of inner experience” facets of Mindfulness, show a lower level of stress and burnout, mostly on the subscales “Emotional Exhaustion” and “Depersonalization” and show a higher level of emotion regulation. There is no gender effect nor in age or hospital experience; correlations between mindfulness base-level and differences in emotion regulation competencies and strategies will be presented. Discussion Nurses working in emergency room are exposed to higher level of work-related stress and burnout than other health professionals; the ability in applying positive emotion regulation strategies and some mindfulness facets are protective factors; therefore mindfulness-based training should be added to nurse curriculum, as well as training in emotion regulation strategies, to help students to develop a set of basic skill to promote well-being and resilience in a stressful working environment.
