NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) -- A new survey suggests more than six out of ten Middle Tennessee nurses feel unprepared for the coronavirus health crisis.

 

The Nashville based Tennessee Nurses Associaiton says the poll was conducted by email in late March. A total of 471 responses was received. The Association acknowlede that the poll was not conducted scientifically.

 

Forty-seven percent of surveyed nurses say they feel unprepared for the pandemic. Among mid-state nurses, 61 percent don't feel equal to the challenge. Forty-five percent statewide say their facilities aren’t properly equipped.

 

On the plus side, six out of ten nurses statewide say they feel supported by leadership as the pandemic gathers steam.
