For over two years, our nation's nurses have confronted the greatest challenge of their careers as the COVID-19 pandemic overloads our health care system and ravages our communities. Nurses serve on the front lines, providing critical, highly skilled care while simultaneously being the emotional core in hospitals across the country.
From the start of our efforts, American Nurses Foundation knew that pandemic-response must continue beyond the immediate period of first COVID diagnoses. The Fund supports nurses through three key stages:
- Relief - Providing immediate assistance for nurses impacted by the pandemic.
- Recovery - Listening to nurses and increasing their strengths and resilience.
- Rebuilding - Evolving the practice of nursing to transform healthcare.
Caring for nurses in this way translates back into exemplary care for patients since it increases nurses' capacity to pour themselves into their absolutely critical work. Healthier nurses lead to healthier communities.
Nurses faced extraordinary challenges as they navigated the pandemic. As the most trusted profession, nurses are still on the frontlines, working tirelessly to protect and care for patients, families, and communities.
