Nurses From Across The Nation Convene In DC For The Launch Of NursingNow USA April 9th


National campaign aims to improve health care globally by raising the profile of nurses


Top nurse leaders, experts and influencers from across the nation are joining together to launchNursing Now USA in Washington D.C at the National Press Club on Tuesday, April 9th from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. Members of the press and reporters can also tune in to a live stream on Facebook.

Nursing Now USA is the national arm of a global campaign – Nursing Now – to improve health and health care by highlighting the impact of nurses on patients, families and communities at all levels, and worldwide.

The launch of Nursing Now USA comes at a critical time for America’s health care system. Health care continues to grow more complex and the demand for health services increases every day. Representing the frontlines of care and the largest group of health care professionals in the U.S., nurses have unmatched perspectives and their ability to evolve in rapidly changing environments is undisputable. Nurses deliver quality, culturally competent patient care and services to individuals, families, groups, communities, populations, and nations. Beyond the bedside, nurses are leading research efforts that improve outcomes, solving public health challenges, influencing health policy decisions, developing ground-breaking innovations, and joining boards of directors to help transform health care.

Nursing Now USA will also help address key issues in the nursing profession such as workplace violence, pay equity, staffing shortages, and barriers to practice.


Experts will be discussing the urgency to raise the profile and status of nurses as part of the Nursing Now USA Panel:

Innovation – Bonnie Clipper, DNP, RN, FACHE, vice president of Innovation at the American Nurses Association
Care Delivery – Pape A. Gaye, president and CEO at IntraHealth International
Policy – Sue Birch, RN, director at Washington State Health Authority
