The conversation will dive into the impact of the coronavirus on safe working conditions and patient safety, Vice President Joe Biden’s pandemic response plan, and — what they say is — President Donald Trump’s failure to keep the country safe.
National Nurses United President Deborah Burger said in a statement they were excited to express their concerns and stories from the front lines.
“The current administration has failed nurses and the public since day one of this crisis and now more than 191,000 people in the United States have died,” said Burger, a registered nurse. “We are very excited to share our concerns and our stories from the front lines with Dr. Jill Biden. We know that Vice President Biden understands that science, truth, and compassion must be our guiding principles as we face the COVID-19 pandemic together as a nation.”
NNU is the nation’s largest and fastest-growing union and professional association of registered nurses, with more than 155,000 members nationwide, according to the organization.
The roundtable begins Monday at 1 p.m. ET.
