UCI Nursing In the Media: Associate Professor Candace Burton was interviewed by The Washington Post about her research into the nature and consequence of moral injury among frontline nurses during COVID-19. The study is co-authored by Drs. Alyson Zalta, associate professor of psychological science and Danisha Jenkins, UCI nursing PhD alum (‘21).
“As a profession, we work hard, we do things that we say normal people would never be doing,” said study author Candace Burton, a UCI assistant professor in the school of nursing. “But this has been beyond anything anyone could have anticipated. The lack of resources, the constant strain and stress and needing to be on and present and going at 110 percent at all times has just been exhausting.”
