ICN and WHO Launching – Nursing Now Join the Campaign
 
On February, 27, the International Council of Nurses (ICN) and the World Health Organization (WHO) is launching Nursing Now, an initiative aimed at empowering nurses to take their place at the heart of tackling 21st Century health challenges.  Concurrent launch events, held in Geneva, Switzerland and London, will be live streamed on Facebook.  ANA board Vice President, Ernest Grant, along with the North Carolina Nurses Association, will be attending the launch event organized by the University of North Carolina.
 
Organized within the Burdett Trust for Nursing, this initiative “aims to improve health globally by raising the profile and status of nurses worldwide – influencing policymakers and supporting nurses themselves to lead, learn and build a global movement. . . Nursing Now will work to build a global network of nurse champions and advocate for more nurses in leadership positions – to help nurses achieve the influence they deserve. And it will help nurses access better education and training, while supporting them to share research and evidence of effective practice.”
 
ANA will continue to share information about this initiative.  In the meantime, nurses and nursing organizations can support the campaign by signing the Pledge.  ANA urges you to learn more about this program and promote the opportunities associated with it.  For more information, contact Cheryl Peterson (cheryl.peterson@ana.org )
