COVID-19 pandemic, emergency remote teaching and Nursing Now: challenges for nursing education




Coronavirus, Pandemics, Education, distance, Education, nursing


ABSTRACT Objective: To discuss remote activities in nursing education in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and amid the global search for strengthening nursing from the perspective of the “Nursing Now” campaign. Method: Theoretical-reflective study based on literature and critical analysis. Discussion: We reflected on the current contextualization of measures to control the COVID-19 pandemic and suspension of face-to-face classes, the adoption of alternative forms of teaching, especially digital online, and the repercussions on nursing teaching strategies. In this case, we faced difficulties in the quality of education, unequal access, and lack of teacher training. Finial considerations: We highlight prejudices in nurses' education by emergency distance learning, in contrast to the world movement for the valorization of sickness. As the inheritance of this process, we must take advantage of technological resources and incorporate them in learning, having as a certainty that the remote model does not contemplate nursing education in its totality. Keywords: Coronavirus. Pandemics. Education, distance. Education, nursing.
