This publication is a summary report of a qualitative survey commissioned by RCN Northern Ireland to identify nurses’ experience of delivering care and treatment across a range of settings during the period April 2020 to March 2021. Not only was 2020 the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, but the timeframe also coincided with a major public health crisis caused by COVID-19. This makes the nurses’ experiences even more significant as it provides a unique social history of nursing during a 21st Century global pandemic.
