On the May 18, 2020 broadcast of nightly news on NHK World-Japan, Susan Michaels-Strasser, PhD, MPH, RN, FAAN, ICAP’s senior director of human resources for health (HRH) development, described the emotional toll that nurses working during the COVID-19 pandemic face.

“It really is analogous to someone coming home from war. [Nurses] are witness to death and pain on a level that most people never have to witness.”

The full segment documented a day in the life of an American doctor who traveled to New York City to support a local hospital.
