A new global campaign named Nursing Now is being launched with events around the world on Feb. 27.

Nursing Now is a three-year campaign run in collaboration with the International Council of Nurses and the World Health Organization; it is a program of the Burdett Trust for Nursing, an independent charitable trust based in London, and is run by a Campaign Board made up of nurses and non-nurses from 16 different countries.
Lord Nigel Crisp, co-chair of Nursing Now, said, "On behalf of Nursing Now supporters across the world, I am delighted to welcome HRH The Duchess of Cambridge as our Patron. Our campaign 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. We are delighted to have a Patron with such a strong commitment to nursing and a history in her family of volunteer nurses. We look forward to working with Her Royal Highness as we support nursing and nurses across the world."
