Nursing students help fight COVID-19


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) – Nursing students are answering the call and joining the frontlines to help fight COVID-19.

Some students putting their own lives at risk before even starting their careers.

As a second-year nursing student, Nicole Louis never expected to work in a pandemic before graduating.

She says she works in a local hospital rotating to different units helping nurses and learning from them as they care for COVID-19.

In addition to school, she says putting her own life at risk to work this job has been an eye-opening experience.

“It definitely makes me very nervous entering the workforce right now,” she said.

However, this is nothing in comparison to why she chose this career path.

“For me, I think I just have a calling to help people whether that’s going in difficult situations that’s kinda what my calling is in life,” Louis said.
