    Pandemic Lessons Learned - Preparedness and Response
    Shan Montgomery, MBA, MPA
    Director of Finance and Operations, Mississippi Board of Nursing

    The COVID-19 pandemic has caused turmoil and upheaval in the personal and professional lives of persons around the globe. The challenges faced by those responding have been unprecedented in modern times. Aside from the critical role of ensuring an adequate nursing workforce to treat the afflicted, Boards of Nursing must also negotiate the challenges of operating a complex, multidisciplinary agency during quarantine and beyond. Agencies have seen three primary operational phases emerge during the pandemic: response; return-to-work; and renewal. Purposeful navigation of each stage has produced positive results and many lessons learned. Agencies must capitalize on these lessons and reinvest the knowledge gained into strategies that bolster our agencies' resilience.
