Abstract

“We are capable of handling the current crisis, even if it is just shift by shift”: Nursing during the COVID-19 Pandemic Beth Hundt University of Virginia In March 2020, the United States began to experience and truly understand the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. The world has not faced a public health crisis with the magnitude of COVID-19 since the 1918 influenza pan- demic. After more than a year into the crisis it is clear that the pandemic has changed not only the lives of healthcare workers who experienced the pan- demic as it unfolded, but also how healthcare workers will navigate the future. In order to understand those changes, it is imperative to record and pre- serve the voices and perspectives of those who were on the front line of the pandemic. To that end, the Eleanor Crowder Bjoring Center for Nursing His- torical Inquiry at the University of Virginia (UVA) issued an open call to nurses and healthcare workers to submit written accounts of their experiences to their website, which would become part of the Pandemic Stories Collec- tion. This article describes and analyzes some of those accounts. Background In the early months of 2020, the pandemic
