149 Tri-Council Alliance for Nursing, COVID-19, and Implications for Correctional Nursing – Part 1
Over 200 nurse leaders formed the Tri-Council Alliance for Nursing with representation from the leading national nursing organizations. They sought to address issues that arose from COVID-19 such as staffing shortages, disrupted clinical education, nurse training/retraining, and behavioral health support. This is critical as nurses are being called upon to administer COVID-19 vaccines and continue to respond to this crisis. Participants will prioritize issues and discuss implications for correctional nurse workforce preparedness.
