By surveying LD nurses using a cross-sectional survey comprised of open-ended questions about changes to their roles during the COVID-19 pandemic as part of a larger national survey, the authors were able to identify key distinctions in the role these nurses have played during the pandemic. Using content analysis of the nurses’ responses, the authors found changes broken into four major categories from the responses: Changes in Roles and Responsibilities, Adaptations to Changes, Psychological Changes, and Perceived Effects on Labor Support.
