The coronavirus pandemic brought new challenges and opportunities for health professionals, including nurses and nursing students. Nurses worked as front-line warriors to fight against COVID-19 worldwide. They worked round the clock to deliver the best possible care to critically ill patients admitted in critical care areas and use ventilators. Therefore, many national and international agencies, including the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Council of Nurses (ICN), and the United Nations (UN) body, have acknowledged the hard work of nurses during the pandemic. This document highlights nurses' diverse roles and responsibilities during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Reflection on their work will further help policymakers support nursing professionals fighting against the virus and putting themselves at inevitable risk of coronavirus.
