The rapid and undetected spread of COVID-19 and the (potentially) relatively high mortality rate from COVID-19-related pneumonia have combined to create the current pandemic crisis, which is impacting greatly on health, economics, and social life on a global scale. Massive medical manpower and resources have been invested in the prevention and treatment of severe pneumonia, increasing the burdens on, and even threatening the exhaustion of, healthcare systems across the world.

Nurses are the frontline healthcare professionals who work across acute care hospitals, long-term care agencies, nursing homes, schools, community, and government healthcare agencies. The multiple roles and functions played by nurses are particularly important during this COVID-19 pandemic. Nurses help families learn to become healthy by helping them understand the range of emotional, physical, mental and cultural experiences they encounter during health and illness. … Nurses do more than just care for individuals. Great career opportunities are abundant and the demand for trained and well-equipped nurses is on the rise each day. For students who have dreams of taking up nursing education, this is perhaps the right time and the right opportunity.
