NAON Orthopaedic Nurses - Share Your Stories

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought uncertain times: some challenging, some inspiring, and we knew that our community of orthopaedic nurses would have your own stories to share from this time. Over the past few weeks, our OrthoNowOther campaign has inspired the NAON community to share stories of compassion, understanding, obstacles overcome, hopes, fears, and even humor. Now, we want to share these stories with everyone, because through sharing, we connect, and with connection, there is strength and support.
