                     ​​​​​COVID-19 Watch: Pandemic Update for Nurses

The COVID-19 pandemic has strained health care systems, increased nurses' responsibilities, and resulted in significant changes in the way we manage care. With this regularly-updated collection of writings and podcasts, AJN will address the "new normal" that faces nurses in every work setting. 

Note that as this situation evolves and the true scope and seriousness of the crisis becomes ever more apparent, certain information and perspectives in older posts, podcasts, and articles will no longer be accurate or up to date; such posts are very much of their particular moment, retained for archive purposes, and should be read accordingly.
