Nurses, Share Your Stories

Your experiences as a nurse are powerful, not just for our nursing community, but for everyone.

AAACN would like to give you a voice, so we are asking all nurses to share your COVID-19 stories and experiences, which we will present on our digital and print platforms.

Group of Healthcare Professionals

Share Your Stories!

Whether you’re working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, or if you shared an emotional experience with a colleague, patient, or family member, please consider telling us about it. If you don’t have a specific story in mind, we’ve given you some sample questions below to get you started.

Your observations and learning will have a tremendous impact on the future of nursing and on our country’s health care delivery as we move forward together in a changed world.

You may choose to provide your name with your submission or remain anonymous. If you are allowing us to include your name with your submission, please include your photo if possible. A selfie is fine, we prefer a close-up shot with your head and shoulders (high resolution, if available). Please do not include the names of any individuals or organizations. (See complete HIPAA information.)

To participate, simply fill in the fields below, upload your photo, and submit. Selected submissions will be posted in the Nurses, Share You Stories section. We will also choose several stories to feature in AAACN publications and platforms. If your submission is chosen for that purpose, you will receive an email from AAACN’s Media Director, Janet D’Alesandro, Note: Submissions may be lightly edited for grammar and punctuation if needed.
