Your COVID-19 Stories Needed

Celebrating Nebraska nurses has been a focus of the Nebraska Nurses Foundation since its inception.  Now more than ever, the NNF wants to celebrate Nebraska Nurses by sharing their COVID-19 stories and is excited to announce our “Proud to Be a Nebraska Nurse: Stories of the 2020 Pandemic” campaign.
