“It never fails to amaze me how powerful a group of nurses can be when faced with a crisis,”says Robert Credeur, BSN, RN, NE-BC, CCRN, director of nursing at Mission Hospital in Asheville, N.C. Robert is one of several nurses that make up Mission Hospital’s COVID-19 Response Nursing team, a special, multi-disciplinary unit comprised of nurses from various departments including Medical-Surgical ICU and Pulmonary Progressive Care. “I have watched this extraordinary team of heroes quickly band together to give the gift of their knowledge, professionalism and sense of calm to our hospital and our community,” Robert says. Heather Fore, RN, is also part of the COVID-19 Response Nursing team. “It takes a village to raise a family,” Heather says. “I’m proud to say my nurses are my family and [we] are helping to take care of the village.”
