Hard agree. @RCNStudents led by the incredible @JessLSainsbury have been amazing through all of this.

We give you our promise that nurse academics are doing EVERYTHING right now to support you and to advocate for you.
Social media are mobilising to support a society becoming crippled by isolation and anxiety.

This is a second epidemic we need to manage.

If you are a student who is not in a placement right now then can you help?

@WeStudentNurse @StNurseProject
Student nurses are facing an uncertain and frightening future and need to maximise peer support. If you haven't already then follow amazing networks such as @WeStudentNurse or @StNurseProject

Follow your amazing #150Leaders

Follow your academics: We will support you too
ALL nurses will support each other as never before. They will build networks and these must incorporate the students.

For a time, universities are entrusting our students to the wider profession. We know you will #BeKind and look after each other

(But we will be watching)
Get all nurses on to Twitter now!

If more 'mature' nurses are stuck with the technology then I'm sure the students will help

#nursetwitter is the best Twitter

P.S. Other social media are available
In the coming weeks, nurses will witness unbearable pain and will continue to show care and compassion to everyone they meet.

It will be hard. It will be unbelievably hard.

It will take a global community to support us through the #internationalyearofthenurse
As people across the country and across the world stay in frightened isolation, we will show them what nurses do and what nurses are.

Nurses protect the vulnerable, and now all of society is too

We must #BeProud
As the whole world sees how hard it is to protect people and maintain dignity @NMnurses will show them

We will also show them how we manage our pain

As people watch us, we help them manage theirs.

If they cannot then we will carry them
To do all of this, we must ensure we are seen and ensure we are heard.

In all of what comes, we must never forget that it was students who taught us to roar.
