Nurses are suffering because of the pandemic.  We hear reports of stress, burn-out, depression, anxiety, demoralization, moral and ethical conflict, anger, and suicide among nurses. Dr. Carole Myers of the University of Tennessee College of Nursing speaks with Dr. Sandy Leake, Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer at University of Tennessee Medical Center.
