COVID-19 has brought forth the vulnerabilities nurses face in the workplace. We are taught to advocate for our patients but there seems to be an issue when we advocate for ourselves. Nursing is the nation's largest healthcare profession, with more than 3.8 million registered nurses (RNs) nationwide. Of all licensed RNs, 84.5% are employed in nursing (2). Honestly, if nurses don’t show up—medical facilities cant operate. We are healthcare’s most valuable asset and the most trusted profession for 19 years and counted—PROTECT NURSES AT ALL COSTS!!
