Sharing Nurses’ Voices in Challenging Times

Gail J. Donner and Mary M. Wheeler


It is easy to get lost in a sea of negativity about everything that is going wrong with healthcare and nursing today. Nurses' Voices ( was launched to amplify the voices of Canadian nurses in challenging times. We listened to amazing stories of nurses making a difference in our healthcare system despite the difficult situations they faced. Our guests talked about their experiences, their aspirations, their challenges, what brings them joy in tough situations and their determination to deliver the best care possible to Canadians despite everything. Talking with these nurses reaffirmed for us that if we want to grow and thrive as a profession in an ever-changing healthcare system, where the new normal is uncertainty, then we need to listen and learn from each other. This is what we heard, and this is what we learned.
