President, International Network for Doctoral Education in Nursing

An enormous “THANK YOU” to ALL nurses throughout the world who are at the forefront of fighting the COVID-19 global pandemic from the International Network for Doctoral Education in Nursing (INDEN)!!!

Nurses have “risen to the occasion” throughout all of history and are doing so now, in so many ways, every day, throughout the world. Whether you are showing remarkable skill, courage, creativity, and compassion on the “front lines” at the bedside; providing administrative support to enhance quality care and to increase the safety of all healthcare workers; dealing with the challenges of educating the next generation of needed nurses; carrying out important research or working in key roles in our public health and policy sectors…. your accomplishments during this unprecedented time are awe-inspiring and truly breathtaking!!!

In this “Year of the Nurse and Midwife”, nurses are demonstrating our “visibility and impact” in ways none of us could have dreamed possible or necessary! We are making a difference—the exact reason most of us went into nursing in the first place!! We have never been so proud to be a nurse!

Please share and pass on our blessings and thanks to all nurses, everywhere!!
