COVID-19 changed the practice and delivery of healthcare in fundamental ways, with a significant impact on the nursing profession. As nurses answered the call for crucial healthcare leadership, long-standing barriers were broken down, policies shifted, and innovative new approaches were developed. While our healthcare system has been ripe for change, the pandemic exposed areas of opportunity and opened a door to new thinking that we need to examine and continue to push forward. In this session, we share learnings and inspirational exemplars from quantitative (n=4000) and qualitative research, fielded during the height of the pandemic, to understand the factors that optimized nurses’ impact on improving human health. Then, chart a path forward to enable this momentum far into the future – preparing the nursing profession to lead and help meet the evolving needs of our healthcare system.
