The issue of America’s nursing shortage has never been more urgent.

The strains on US healthcare are unprecedented, but the experiences of individual nurses have been largely overlooked. The AAIHR wants to hear from nurses like you. Please share your experiences in your unit and your photos to bring the front lines to ordinary Americans.
