Celebrating a year of the Nursing Now Challenge!
Today we celebrate a year since the launch of the Nursing Now Challenge, and what a year it has been!
- The Nursing Now Challenge network is now more than 50, 000 members strong.
- We have a dynamic Challengers’ Committee made up of more than 100 members across each of the WHO regions who work to challenge the status quo and forge the future of nursing and midwifery.
- From Midwives in Focus to the Immunisation Advocacy Champions, the Nursing Now Challenge is leading innovative projects and supporting student and early-career nurses and midwives to have their voices heard at every decision-making table.
“The Nursing Now Challenge was launched in June 2021, following the success of the Nightingale Challenge. In spite of the growing demands and pressures on nurses and midwives around the world, the Nursing Now Challenge network has become a much-needed space for early-career nurses and midwives to convene, share experiences and learn from one another.” Professor Lisa Bayliss-Pratt, Programme Director, Nursing Now Challenge.
“The Burdett Trust is delighted to support the Nursing Now Challenge and in doing so, contribute to the leadership development of early-career nurses and midwives around the world. As we look to recover and rebuild following the devastating global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the opportunities that the Nursing Now Challenge provides for early-career nurses and midwives are invaluable.” Shirley Baines, Chief Executive, The Burdett Trust for Nursing.
We are delighted to announce that, thanks to funding from The Burdett Trust for Nursing, the Nursing Now Challenge has been extended until 2025.
We are looking forward to growing this global network over the coming years and supporting even more student and early-career nurses and midwives on their leadership journeys.
