The StagsCare program at a Christian university offered support to recent nursing graduates and other alumni during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. Faculty of the Egan School of Nursing and Health Studies created the StagsCare program, providing opportunity for alumni spanning over 20 class years to join in community for prayer, reflection, and shared experience. Both new and seasoned nurses, most of whom did not know one another, offered support to one another and strengthened their spiritual foundations as they served on the frontlines of the pandemic across the United States.
