As we reflect back to the time before the pandemic, we can take a breath and identify all of the amazing obstacles that were overcome through teamwork. This article reflects the challenges that New York University Langone Hospital-Long Island encountered trying to overcome the clinical challenges of treating patients with COVID-19 while integrating research into a chaotic and ever-changing environment. Early on, it became evident that acute kidney failure was a major complication of this virus, and nephrology nurses played an integral role in managing this outcome. Science was the shining light that gave hope through the research, which was conducted as a team effort throughout the organization.
