Lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic: Why we need to invest in advanced practice nurses
MetadataShow full item record
Dear Editor: In recognition of the newly gained prominence and visibility of health professionals in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, the World Health Organization has made 2021 the International Year of Health and Care Workers, after having designated 2020 as the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife. Nurses are essential at the different levels of health care, following best practices, offering timely information and action in health, and coordinating and managing care and services. However, investment in nursing professionals has proven to be insufficient; efforts must be made to strengthen leadership and optimize this workforce for an effective response to the health needs of the population.
