The TDS Health Team would like to celebrate nurses this week (and every week for that matter) and say THANK YOU for all you do and have done on the front lines and behind the scenes amid the raging crisis of coronavirus in the world. You have been working long hours and risking your lives to protect humanity. There is no way we can thank you enough for your hard work.
As a small gesture, TDS Health and our multitude of product partners and publishers are committed to providing nurses and other healthcare providers access to content, tools and information relating to the pandemic. See our COVID-19 page with videos, lectures, and news from TDS Health and our partners including MedCram, Reuters Health News and more.
Last year, the World Health Organization (WHO) designated 2020 as the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, and expanded the event into a month-long celebration. The expansion coincided with the declaration of 2020 as the Year of the Nurse, as well as the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.
The ANA and WHO extended the “Year of the Nurse” into 2021 to continue recognition the nurses who continue to serve on the front lines of the pandemic.
No matter the day or circumstance, nurses make a difference in our society. A nurse sharing their experience is empowering and especially powerful with their accounts of inspiration, accomplishments, challenges, and how they continue to thrive through difficult times. Explore stories and images submitted by nurses through the ANA Enterprise digital storybook, To Be a Nurse. To Be a Nurse is a collection of stories and photos from nurses around the world. Submitted during the Year of the Nurse, these stories showcase diverse experiences, inspiration, and reflections.
