On the 27th of March 2020, Ireland changed forever. Our world as we knew it stopped. Uncertainty, fear and confusion took hold of the nation and forever changed us as a society. Doctors, nurses and health care staff began the long fight for people’s lives. In this radio documentary, student nurses tell their stories of working through a global pandemic, the effects it had on them mentally, physically and emotionally, and their personal lives, and also discuss their relations with the government.
