15: COVID-19 The Nurse Response: On Life Support
Nurses are exposed to death, suffering, and sickness throughout their careers and COVID-19 has only increased their exposure to traumatic environments. Because of their environment, nurses experience adverse effects on their mental health and well-being. Why is it then that nurses are often not screened or provided with mental health support in their workspaces? Nurse scientist Judy Davidson DNP, RN, FCCM, FAAN works to reinforce the mental health needs of nurses while bringing awareness to nurse suicides. She creates programs that provide simple and accessible tools for health systems to adopt throughout their networks to ensure that nurses can stay strong, be supported, and get help when needed.
