It’s National Nurses Week in the United States – a good time to appreciate all that this profession contributes to caring, quality healthcare. Recently, the World Health Organization backed an international campaign to increase the profile of the nursing profession and give nurses more of a say in healthcare policy. Nurses are so vital to the global healthcare system that we need 9 million new nurses by 2030, the WHO said as it announced support of Nursing Now.
