The world’s nurses have been enduring ceaseless challenges from the overwhelmed health-care system, resulting in burn-out. This was further exacerbated by the most recent COVID-19 pandemic that strained the front-line nurses worldwide. Even as nurses have been appreciated and widely trusted for this service, their public voices are still rarely heard. The absence of nursing’s voice contributes to the fact that nurses continue to be undervalued.
This Nurses’ Voices Speaker Series will continue our innovative global multimedia outreach to prepare and engage nurses, including students and retirees, to become empowered leading public storytellers and to share their stories of advocating for healing, resilience and collaboration for a healthy world, as thought-leaders across the global public space and to the listening ears of everyone.
