During COVID-19 pandemic, EHS nurses and midwives have successfully demonstrated their true contribution, dedication and commitment within the healthcare system at its various levels and have enriched the positive community view of the nursing profession. Their efforts as one of the UAE champions and first line defenders whether in strategic planning, leadership or clinical care have been recognized, twitted and appreciated by the country leaders. I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to UAE leaders for their constant follow up, interaction with nurses and provision of support in demonstration of united spirit that serves UAE community. The tweets shared by HH Shaikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan and HH Shaikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum and their checking on nurses contributed in raising the morals and deepening the sense of responsibility and the value of duty call. Also, the messages shared by Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak had positive and motivational impacts. I would like also to extend my deepest appreciation to all nursing students who volunteered and joined the first line field along with our strategic stakeholders from government, academia and healthcare institutions for their collaboration and cooperation.
