COVID Diaries: Share your perceptions of work and life during the pandemic
Updated: Oct 1
With a possible special Legislative Session on the horizon to impact the Executive Orders that have extended health care access and services during the pandemic -- it is more important than ever to tell the stories of how APRNs have risen to address the challenges of COVID-19.
Detailing work and life for Nurse Practitioners during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Your perspective and your experiences are important and valuable.
With your assistance, we can raise awareness of the many innovations made, lives saved, patient needs met, education provided, ongoing quality health care administered and more that APRNs have made happen every day during the global pandemic.
The public needs to know the many ways that the comprehensive care of APRNs “goes the extra mile” for their patients. People need to better understand the contributions made by APRNs in hospitals, college classrooms, research departments, private clinics, nursing homes, delivery rooms, health departments, K-12 Schools and more.
With your help and your stories — we can make that happen.
Please consider sharing your perceptions and insights so the Association Advocacy team can best illustrate the leadership, selflessness and expertise of our members during this most difficult time.
