COVID-19 The Nurse Response: Safe Homes

With shelter-in-place orders in effect across the country, people are spending prolonged periods of time inside their homes but what happens when home isn’t safe? In this episode of SEE YOU NOW, we speak with nurse scientist Camille Burnett about how nurses are in a unique position in their communities to screen, access, intervene, and meet people where they are—particularly responding to intimate partner violence.

COVID-19 The Nurse Response: The Volume of Silence

During this pandemic, communities across the globe have experienced extraordinary social solidarity with the prevailing sentiment of ‘we are in this together’. While we’ve come together for mutual support and understanding in small and extraordinary ways, there are a few who believe the necessary public health measures are too lengthy and too broad. And in some parts of the US, they’ve taken to the streets to protest mandatory shelter-in-place orders that have closed non-essential parts of our economies. The loudest voices in the midst of these debates and protests were the nurses who stood silently in solidarity for their patients who could not join the conversation. In Arizona, nurses Jade Juriansz, Jasmine Bhatti, and Brittany Schilling participated in a counter protest to provide facts about what is happening with COVID-19 on the frontlines. Although silent, these nurses’ presence and motivation resounded around the world. In this episode we get to hear the motivations of this courageous group who made a commitment to educate the public and share the facts, and the health risks—a true example of 'meeting people where they are'.

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.

COVID-19 The Nurse Response: School Recess

Across the world, students of all ages along with educators and families are part of an unanticipated global homeschooling abruptly introduced by COVID-19. While necessary to ensure public safety during a pandemic, closing schools is a difficult and complex decision that has far-reaching implications for students’ health, their learning, and their safety. No one is more attuned to those needs than school nurses who, on any given school day, are helping medically fragile and special needs students, and students struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, food, housing, and economic insecurity. In this episode, we virtually visit Camden, NJ, to meet veteran school nurse, Robin Cogan MEd, RN, NCSN and learn why school nurses should be at the center of re-entry decision making and how school nurses are supporting students and families while uncertainty looms.
