Nursing Now 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.

The changing needs of the twenty-first century means nurses have an even greater role to play in the future. New and innovative types of services are needed – more community and home-based, more holistic and people-centered, with increased focus on prevention and making better use of technology. These are all areas where nurses can play a leading role. However, maximizing the contribution of nurses will require that they are properly deployed, valued and included in policy and decision-making.

Nursing Now works with partners, such as Montclair State University, to advocate for more nurses in leadership positions – to help them achieve the influence they deserve. This partnership will also help nurses access better education and training, while supporting them to share research and evidence of effective practice.

By adopting the principles of Nursing Now, we will encourage health leaders to invest in nursing and introduce new models of care that maximize nurses’ contributions to achieving Universal Health Coverage, which would guarantee everyone the right to quality health care without financial hardship.
