Nurses Helping Nurses

to Heal Each Other

and the World

There are approximately 27.9 million nurses world wide and 59% of health care providers are nurses.* We hope that this organization will allow nurses across the globe to use our collective “power in numbers” to help each other during times of crisis and also when things are going well. As nurses, we individually work to improve quality of life for our patients every day. This organization was formed to provide an opportunity for individual nurses all across the globe to connect, share knowledge and do what we can to collectively help heal each other and the world. Such efforts are truly necessary as nurses and patients world wide struggle emotionally, psychologically and physically to survive this Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

This organization is intended to allow nurses to give voice to concerns that we have and potential solutions. It is all about kindness and caring for each other. So hate speech of any kind is not allowed – ever! On the other hand, some nurses and their patients are facing horrendous conditions, in war torn countries, in refuge camps, in prisons, etc. In the event that you are sharing this kind of information, be cautious about the personal information you include. You will need to send an email we can use to contact you as everything submitted is peer-reviewed before publication.

As we struggle together to survive the COVID-19 pandemic, let us also work together to envision and create a better world. A world where humans and other earthly beings will not only survive but thrive. A world where clean water, nutritious food and fresh air are available to everyone. A world where racial, ethnic and socioeconomic inequities no longer result in stress related end-organ damage, chronic disease and years of life lost. A world where all children are loved and nurtured and safe.
