About Nursing Now

Nursing Now is a three-year global awareness campaign which, in collaboration with the World Health Organization and the International Council of Nurses, aims to raise the status and profile of nursing around the world. The initiative, which is patroned by Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, works to empower nurses to take their place at the heart of tackling 21st Century health challenges. Head to the Nursing Now website to find out more.

Nursing Now Challenge Calendar

ACN and the other major nursing organisations in Australia have created the Nursing Now Australia Challenge Calendar to support the objectives of the Nursing Now campaign and count down to the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale on 12 May 2020. The calendar will allow you to make a direct impact on the way our profession is regarded by other health care professionals, the media, governments and the community at large. Download your copy of the calendar now to get started. Each time you have completed a monthly challenge make sure you submit an entry using the online form to go in the draw to win one of two $100 Visa gift cards every month.
