Nearing the second anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s clear this is a challenging moment for nurses. And yet, now is nursing’s moment.
Nurses have been ranked the “most trusted profession” by a Gallup poll for 20 years in a row. In fact, the last time nurses weren’t ranked the most trusted profession was in deference to firefighters the year after September 11.
This year, nurses also make up three of the top 10 “Best Health Care Jobs” as ranked by U.S. News & World Report, with nurse practitioners ranked no. 1, registered nurses no. 5, and nurse anesthetists no. 8.
Nurses, we need you. You have the numbers, your voice carries weight, and your patients trust you.
