This presentation will review the findings of a qualitative research analysis which focused on the impact of Pet Assisted Therapy on behavioral health nurses. Three salient areas were explored including the impact of pet assisted therapy upon the nurses' emotional well-being, their views regarding this therapy upon job retention and the therapeutic measures utilized in their application of pet assisted therapy in mental health patient care. Assessment of the effects of pet assisted therapy and its possible positive impact on the retention of behavioral health nurses could provide salient information for nursing educators and hospital administrators. Identifying therapeutic measures utilized by health care providers in the application of pet assisted therapy could offer valuable educative opportunities for health care workers in the treatment of mental illness. This is particularly important in relationship to the nurses' sense of resilience in the contemporary work arena which must provide renewal opportunities.
