Nurses have seen the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic over the past year, and with the spread of the Delta variant, how are nurses handling more hospitalizations on top of an ongoing nurse shortage.

Today we hear from nurses across the state to find out what they’re seeing in hospitals and how they’re doing right now. We’ll also learn how the nursing shortage during the pandemic could impact the future of nursing. Plus, we talk to the dean of the IU Nursing School to find out how students are being prepared to enter the field during the pandemic.
