To recognize nursing leadership, we are two Doctoral nursing students launching a campaign- Nurse Commanders: Leading Troops Against the Invisible Enemy: COVID-19. This is an effort to raise awareness of nursing contributions in facing challenges of a rapidly evolving healthcare system. We are capturing stories from our Nurse Commanders on the frontlines on how they are promoting nursing excellence, innovation in health care delivery, and demonstrating nursing leadership in their respective settings during these unprecedented times. Submit your story today!
