Objetivo: compreender as percepções dos profissionais de enfermagem em relação aos possíveis desfechos decorrentes da pandemia da COVID-19 para a profissão. Método: estudo de abordagem qualitativa, fundamentada na História Oral, mediante entrevista e aplicação de um questionário socioeconômico/profissional, realizado na unidade de internação de uma instituição de saúde de grande porte, localizada no município de São Paulo, capital do estado de São Paulo. Resultados: foram extraídas das entrevistas duas categorias relevantes: Crença no fortalecimento da enfermagem no pós-pandemia e Descrença na melhora da imagem da enfermagem no pós-pandemia. Considerações finais: as identidades profissionais são construídas mediante as interações sociais entre o eu (indivíduo) e o outro (grupos sociais e institucionais). Esta interação é marcada por conflitos que resultam na reconstrução desta identidade e com possíveis reflexos na prática profissional.

Objective: to understand the perceptions of nursing professionals in relation to possible outcomes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic for the profession. Method: qualitative study, based on Oral History, through interviews and application of a socioeconomic/professional questionnaire, conducted in the hospitalization unit of a large health institution, located in the city of São Paulo, capital of the state of São Paulo. Results: two relevant categories were extracted from the interviews: Belief in the strengthening of nursing in the post-pandemic and Disbelief in the improvement of nursing image in the post-pandemic. Final considerations: professional identities are constructed through social interactions between the me (subject) and the other (social and institutional groups). This interaction is marked by conflicts that result in the reconstruction of this identity and with possible reflexes in professional practice.

A cultural meta-analysis for post Covid-19 times. The professional and human experience of the still ongoing emergency which has transformed the structure itself of the lives of world countries has generated a very large and fragmented spectrum of mainly descriptive and narrative publications (from inside the professions involved, as well as on the impact of the pandemia on the society) which defy any tentative of comprehensive understanding. This contribution proposes the results of an unusual, possibly provocative, metanalytic approach adapted to assess the existence, if any, of general evidences which could be assumed as a take home message of the heterogeneous, highly rich, mainly qualitative materials which have been produced so far: on the care aspects of the pandemia as well as on its more general significance for and impact on the society. The predefined biases and limitations of this approach (defined as cultural, i.e.which tries to provide an overall picture beyond the details) are declared to introduce and justify the outcome results of the exercise: a series of keywords is presented and commented as a guide into the future of a nursing profession ready and willing to have a more autonomous and innovative professional identity in the health care scenario and in the society.

The SARS-CoV­2 virus and the associated disease COVID-19 pose major challenges to healthcare systems worldwide. Especially the vulnerable group of people in need of long-term care is at risk of suffering a severe course of the disease or of dying from the infection.In a nationwide cross-sectional study the situation and needs of inpatient and outpatient long-term care facilities during the SARS-CoV­2 pandemic were assessed and analyzed using an online survey.Participants from 531 institutions postulated the need for uniform recommendations for action on SARS-CoV­2, adequate and affordable protective and hygiene materials, serial tests in the institutions, well-founded advice on the implementation of interventions, a specific pandemic plan and supporting public relations work by the media. This calls for higher nursing remuneration, better staffing levels and greater appreciation of the nursing profession.In order to protect the vulnerable group of people in need of nursing care from a SARS-CoV­2 infection, long-term care must be given a stronger focus in health policy measures during the pandemic.

Living the art of nursing during the challenging times of a pandemic has profound implications for the discipline of nursing. Opportunities and limitations coexist with persons who shelter in place while others continue to practice amid personal risk in institutions where vital healthcare services are provided. This article illustrates potential lessons to be learned for future nurse practice and the ethos or straight-thinking implications for living quality during a global health crisis.
