AACN’s mission supports critical care nurses who take care of the sickest patients and their families. At the same time, the COVID-19 crisis has cast our community of exceptional nurses into the most vulnerable time of their careers and lives.

Nurses in our community are leaders, skilled clinicians, innovators, counselors, parents, spouses and so much more. That’s why we’ve partnered with DearWorld.org — an organization that documents pivotal events with moving portraits and compelling stories — to share all of the facets of nurses’ experiences during this life-altering moment in history. As nurses become the storytellers, it will help them bolster resilience, find gratitude and celebrate each other.
