Professional nurses constitute the highest number of health manpower all over the world. The nature of their work make them prone to physical and emotional trauma which sometimes affect the care they render. Therefore, nursing requires that professionals demonstrate acceptable levels of self-awareness and self-control which is congruent with the key principles of mindfulness contributing to a standard of nursing practices that do not always reach by providers as expected. Likewise, Nurse Managers are expected to utilise mindfulness principles in the planning, organising, staffing, directing and controlling activities of their units. Therefore, the aim of this study was to develop a mindfulness-based unit management training programme for professional nurses in Ondo State, Nigeria. The objectives of this study were to: (a) determine the level of individual mindfulness of professional nurses. (b) measure the extent to which individual mindfulness impacts professional nurses’ mindfulness. (c) determine the effect of professional nurses’ mindfulness on unit management performance of professional nurses. (d) design mindfulness-based unit management programme for professional nurses. (e) verify the developed mindfulness-based unit management training programme for professional nurses.
