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 especially important as nurses and patients world wide struggle emotionally, psychologically and physically to survive this Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

In the event that you are sharing sensitive information, be cautious about the personal information you include. Please note that posts will not be immediate as everything submitted is peer-reviewed before publication. The editors reserve the right determine what is and is not appropriate for publication on this site.

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, and now in hospitals and others settings where we struggle to care for overwhelming numbers of patients with Coronavirus.

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.

It is our intention to keep membership free. Please note that we will use advertisers in the future to help offset the costs of maintaining this organization and website.
