The Ebola virus presents unique challenges to the U.S. health care system. Preparedness across the spectrum of care, whether a specialized clinical setting, community hospital or primary care setting, is key to effectively treating patients and protecting nurses.

ANA has brought together a panel of health care experts to discuss what every nurse needs to know to be prepared to protect themselves from contracting Ebola while providing quality patient care.
