#NursesCan Campaign

Inspired by the “We Can Do It!" poster, the #NursesCan campaign was created to boost nurse worker moral and share stories from of modern-day nurse heroes during our countries COVID-19 pandemic.

In 1942, an artist known as J. Howard Miller was hired by the Westington Company’s War Production Coordination Committee to create an image to boost female worker morale during WWII. Thus, “Rosie the Riveter” and the historical, “We Can Do It!” poster was born.

Decades later, we are 4 million nurses strong and make up the largest group of female dominated health care professionals in the United States. Today, I am so proud to honor each and every nurse, no matter gender, role or race, in our countries current war against COVID-19.

These are the faces of just some of the women both on the frontlines and in the community providing resources and tools to help nurses survive and thrive in a time of war.

We are Nurses,









And so much more.

We are 4 million strong.
