ICN Invites Nurses to Share Their Stories

The International Council of Nurses would like to invite you to visit our new COVID-19/Year of the Nurse portal where we bring together experiences, learning and advice from the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On this special platform, we have pulled together stories from the frontlines, virtual events which continue to bring our community together, and resources from ICN, WHO, Jhpiego and many other authors.

This is a global crisis which requires a global response and we need you to take part!

Submissions may be in English, French or Spanish.
Please note that all submissions will be reviewed by ICN prior to posting and may also be edited.
