Nursing Now Launch!

Nursing Now Logo


Nursing Now is a global campaign which launches this week in collaboration with the World Health Organisation and International Council of Nurses. Nursing Now is based on the findings of the Triple Impact report. The report concluded that as well as improving health globally, empowering nurses would contribute to improved gender equality as the vast majority of nurses are women, and build stronger economies.

Nurses and nursing students from the University of Edinburgh and NHS Lothian are joining the international launch this week by involving Edinburgh in the global conversation and giving nurses a voice in the future of healthcare.

Representatives of Nursing Now from the University of Edinburgh will be visiting the wards of the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh to take coffee to the nurses on duty to thank them for the care they are giving – and to let them know their voice matters.

Nursing Now continues to highlight the essential role and crucial knowledges which nurses bring to healthcare – to elevate the imperative work of nurses worldwide we are going to as the nurses of Edinburgh “If you could change the world tomorrow, as a nurse….”

The Nursing Now global campaign launched 27 February 2018, tickets available for the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh event Thursday 1 March 2018.
