Purpose: To systematically review the real experience of nurses in the fight against the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Methods: PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, CBM, CNKI, Wan-Fang Data, and VIP from inception to April 2020. Qualitative research on real experience of nurses in the fight against the COVID-19 were collected. The study was screened by two researchers according to the criteria. After obtaining the data, the study quality was evaluated according to the JBI Critical Appraisal Tool, and the results were integrated by meta-synthesis. Results: Ten qualitative studies were included, involving 29 clear results and 7 categories, then 3 integrated themes were extracted: bear the burden of mind and body; desire for support and approval; self-worth is reflected. Conclusions: Nurses play an important role in the battle against the new coronavirus pneumonia, and nursing managers should dissolve the negative emotions of nurses in time. From the national and policy level, a scientific guarantee system should be formed for the materials, talent reserve, logistics, professional knowledge and other powerful guarantees. The community needs to foster a culture of respect for health care workers so that nurses can achieve their own value and gain a sense of professional identity and honor.
