The Institute is proud to support the ambitions of Nursing Now, a global campaign, which launched today.

Dr Cheryll Adams CBE, executive director iHV, commented:

“Nursing Now is such an exciting and ambitious initiative for nursing. The Institute will support it all it can. Its objectives are so closely aligned to our own here at the iHV – strengthening leadership and education being two key objectives.”

Nursing Now is a three-year global campaign run in collaboration with the International Council of Nurses and the World Health Organization. Nursing Now is run by a Campaign Board made up of nurses and non-nurses from 16 different countries. The campaign is a programme of the Burdett Trust for Nursing.

Nursing Now will run to the end of 2020 – the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth and a year when nurses will be celebrated worldwide. Nursing Now’s aim is to improve perceptions of nurses, enhance their influence and maximise their contributions to ensuring that everyone everywhere has access to health and healthcare.
