The Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is still threatening lives in Türkiye and other countries, posing a global health risk. COVID-19 infection is a serious disease that spreads quickly from person-to-person, causing respiratory tract infection, multiple organ failures, and even death in severe cases. The healthcare sector is undoubtedly one of the most affected sectors by the pandemic. Nurses who make up the vast majority of the health force, are playing a critical role in controlling the outbreak. While trying to cope with the anxiety of obscurity, nurses working on the front lines of the outbreak have encountered a variety of concerns and issues. The purpose of this study was to reveal the planning and problems encountered in outbreak control as nursing services.
