The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of investing in public health for the public good. The backbone of the public health sector always has been, and always will be, nurses.
Nurses have always served on the frontline of health crises, natural disasters and epidemics. Today, it’s no different. Comprised of dedicated and compassionate individuals, nurses are present at birth and in death, in moments of great joy and in times of unspeakable sorrow. They are the core of the health care system.
