Join us for the 5th event in our series recording the nursing experience of the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic.

We are living in historic times. Since the World Health Organization declared a pandemic in 11 March 2020, nursing staff have performed a huge range of vital roles in the COVID-19 response in the UK and beyond. Now is the time to go beyond the “clap for carers” and better understand what life during the pandemic has been like for nursing staff in different situations and contexts. From first responders and nursing leaders to staff working in care homes and the nursing students who stepped up from their degrees to support the NHS, this series marks the ongoing impact of the pandemic on nursing and nurses.

Each virtual event takes the form of live interviews with nursing and healthcare staff and students, followed by a Q&A. The interviews will be recorded and added to the RCN archive, making sure these experiences are recorded for posterity.
