NNU Covid Survey #8: Year Three: Acute and Long Covid, A Double Public Health and Occupational Health Crisis
National Nurses United’s new nationwide survey of more than 2,800 registered nurses reveals continued significant issues related to staffing, workplace violence, Covid precautions, and other issues.
This CE course will discuss circulating respiratory viral infections, including respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza, and Covid-19. Participants will then explore how the hospital industry’s normalizing of crisis standards of care has created a quad-demic and set the stage for the surge in respiratory viruses to become a crisis in health care.
As more individuals are continually exposed to and infected by SARS-CoV-2, reports of long-term health consequences have also increased. This CE class will discuss the latest scientific updates about long Covid and the implications of these scientific updates for nurses, their patients, and advocacy for safe patient care.
Bivalent Covid vaccines, or bivalent boosters, contain two different components for the immune system to respond to. Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna’s mRNA bivalent Covid-19 vaccines contain the mRNA for the spike protein for two different strains of the virus.
