Objectives: The objective of this work was to explore critical care nurses’ perceptions about how their role and professional identify has been constructed by the media and public during COVID-19.
Methods: We conducted a descriptive, qualitative study with critical care nurses via digital platforms (e.g. Zoom and Teams). We used semi structured interviews to explore the concepts of the angel and hero, using a series of images from health services and the media to stimulate conversation. Interviews were recorded, transcribed and analysed thematically.
Results: Twenty-four critical care nurses were recruited from four countries. At the time of submission, preliminary themes identified from the analysis were discomfort, diminishing and dismissal.
Conclusion(s): Overall, critical care nurses were uncomfortable with the use of the term’s angels and heroes to describe their work during COVID-19 and felt it did not accurately represent nursing work or nurses.
