The Heroes Behind the Masks program launched in October 2020 with a call for nurses to share their stories for an opportunity to be featured in the digital content series. More than 1,750 nurses from across the country shared stories about their inspiration for entering the field, the challenges faced during their career and their hopes for the future of nursing. To honor all nurses and help inspire others, we are excited to share four of these stories through our Heroes Behind the Masks series.
