You’ll Never See Nurses the Same After Reading Raw Letters From the Front Line

DearWorld.org, a non-profit organization dedicated to telling the stories of our time, has launched Dear Nurses, a portrait series celebrating heroes working in hospitals amid the horror of the COVID-19 pandemic.  

In honor of 2020 being designated as the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, DearWorld.org has partnered with the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN) to interview and capture portraits of 40 nurses working in COVID-19 units across Louisiana. Each portrait features a personal message written on their skin, Dear World’s signature storytelling medium, and includes a first-person account of the story that inspired the words written on their bodies.
