UNC to Lead Nursing Now-USA Initiative with UW

Carolina Nursing will join the University of Washington School of Nursing to lead the US effort to promote Nursing Now, a global campaign to raise the status and profile of nursing.

The UNC School of Nursing joined IntraHealth International as the US site for the global launch of the initiative in February 2018 and is eager to further its work.

“We are delighted to take the lead in advancing the priorities of this important campaign for the United States,” said Nena Peragallo Montano, dean of the UNC School of Nursing. “Nurses are uniquely suited to meet many of the needs demanded by changes in health and health care worldwide and it is critical that we inform and advocate on behalf of the profession now to ensure populations the world over receive the care they deserve.”

Planning for a nationwide launch for Nursing Now is underway and will take place in spring 2019.
