COVID-19 patients’ odyssey to peaceful repose includes the role of ICU nurses in three aspects of care, which include self-care, care of dying patients, and care of significant others. The purpose of this review is to identify an encompassing holistic approach to achieving a peaceful end of life. Discussion begins with the prevalence of end-of-life care, which is followed by the objectives and role of nurses with critically ill patients, and the various insights into the essence of a good or quality end-of-life care. It is hoped that by understanding the various role of nurses during COVID-19, educational implications can be provided.
