During National Nurses Week, which kicks off today, we salute all nurses who are answering the call for their patients and their communities during the coronavirus pandemic. Despite the emotional toll, nurses have been fearless and resilient, as they work without adequate personal protective equipment, exposing themselves and their families to risk.

Watch this video, in which AFSCME President Lee Saunders pays tribute to nurses and the noble work they are doing under the most difficult of circumstances.
