Episode 8: Can Nursing Survive the COVID-19 Pandemic?
According to Cynda Rushton, Anne and George L. Bunting Professor of Clinical Ethics at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, the answer is yes. But the profession and the greater health care system must be ready to take some advised and intentional steps forward. This starts with acknowledging and assessing the wounds of the pandemic, and then developing solutions to better prepare health systems and clinicians with tools to meet the challenges in the future.
On this episode, Dr. Rushton discusses the current state of nursing, the new report on preparing nurses to practice with resilience and integrity, and a message of hope for the future.
