Week 1 - Using Science to Support Practice

May 1–8, 2021
Over the past year, we’ve seen science evolve as we learned more about COVID-19 and its effects, transmission, treatment, and prevention, and thus recommendations have changed frequently, sometimes even daily. Watching science happen in real-time is new, especially to the public. Now more than ever, we are critical in explaining the science behind current recommendations to continue our momentum through this pandemic.

Week 2 – Striving for Social Justice & Ethics

May 9-15, 2021
COVID-19 has changed the landscape of our community, however the fact that certain communities are impacted differently by disease and infection is not new. We also know that racism itself is a public health issue. As nurses, we have been trained to extend our plan of care to include not just the individual patient, but also their family and the community.

Week 3 – Building Resilience

May 16-22, 2021
Depression, burnout, compassion fatigue, and secondary traumatic stress have been ongoing issues among health care professionals, but there has been no bigger test of resilience than COVID-19. The long-term effects have yet to be seen, but these experiences will certainly be transformative.

Week 4 – Using our Voices to Drive Change

May 23-31, 2021
Nurses make up the largest healthcare workforce; we work at the bedside, teach at universities, conduct ground-breaking research, serve as hospital Chief Nursing Officers (CNOs) and hold high level executive positions within a variety of business organizations. Our voices are important – let’s prioritize making them heard.
