About the Nursing Now Challenge

Professor Lisa Bayliss-Pratt

“As a leading provider of nursing education in the UK we are very proud to work with organisations including Health Education England (HEE) and the Tropical Health and Education Trust (THET) to implement the Nursing Now Challenge. We hope that it will have a significant impact, particularly in low and middle-income countries, supporting the development of the global health workforce, strengthening health systems and improving the health of people around the world.”

"Nursing Now has made great strides to raise the profile and status of nurses and midwives globally, but there is still so much to do. And with that in mind, I’m really pleased to announce that I will be continuing in my role as Ambassador for the Nursing Now Challenge. I'm really looking forward to this next chapter, building on the incredible legacy of the Nursing Now campaign to support early-career nurses and midwives around the world."
