This book holds the stories of nine nurses from across the United States, who volunteered to work in New York City hospitals during the peak of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. These nurses left their ordinary lives behind to fly on empty planes to a city overwhelmed by a plague. Thrust onto the coronavirus wards, they saw and did incredible things. Faced with adversity they put patients’ lives before their own, working tirelessly day after day in unimaginable conditions. These first-hand accounts provide a powerful look at what it was really like on the front lines of health care during a global pandemic. The stories these nurses have are crucial to share with the world. This should never happen again.
