The Nursing Now campaign, launched this week, to raise the profile and status of nursing. It focuses on five areas:

  • ensuring that nurses and midwives have a more prominent voice in health policy-making;
  • encouraging greater investment in the nursing workforce;
  • recruiting more nurses into leadership positions;
  • conducting research that helps determine where nurses can have the greatest impact; and
  • sharing of best nursing practices.
Strengthening nursing globally could have a triple impact on improving health, improving gender equality by empowering women and building stronger economies.
