Hello everyone, I hope this finds you safe and well. It is week 2 in the COVID-19 pandemic.
Some of the impacts in my life include:
- Nursing and other health science programs closing down or moving to an online delivery model.
- Clinical partners putting a hold on students -clinical resources will also go online when possible.
- The test centers for NCLEX EXAMS closing down for a time.
Some of us are more able than others to convert to online learning. In my case, we have some capacity but it is not our usual and customary mode of course delivery. I am already having bandwidth problems on my internet meeting portals and have had many system slow-downs and crashes. I am already a bit stir crazy staying home with my husband and pets 24/7! I remind myself to be grateful for my health, honor my friends and colleagues, and try to be of service when and where I can.
If we can do anything to support you at this time, please reach out to us.
Thanks and be well Diann Martin, PhD, RN
