Despite the risks of exposure and a lack of clinical resources, nurses have been dubbed "heroes" by politicians, the media, and the general public for their dedication to giving front-line care to persons with COVID-19. COVID-19's impacts have been felt in every corner of the globe, and they are still spreading. As nurses use the power of storytelling to share their own experiences with COVID-19, anecdotes continue to emerge. Nurses working in critical care settings have seen some of the most rapid changes as a result of COVID-19. Nurses are exposed to infectious diseases at a high incidence. Nurses and other health care personnel have faced a global shortage of PPE during the COVID-19 outbreak, and institutions have used novel methods to retain and reuse PPE. A large proportion of nurses were also experiencing moral distress as a result of the constant pressure to maintain the resources required to offer safe and high-quality nursing care. Nurses were also faced with the task of preventing many COVID-19 patients from communicating with their family at the end of their lives.
