Messages for You


2020 is the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife! My new year’s resolution is to support nurses and midwives ๐Ÿ‘all ๐Ÿ‘ year ๐Ÿ‘long๐Ÿ‘

The best way to start is by saying MORE! We need more nurses and midwives, and they need more power, more opportunity and more respect! More please!

Nurses are:

๐Ÿ‘‰Leaders ๐Ÿ‘‰Innovators

๐Ÿ‘‰Researchers ๐Ÿ‘‰Clinicians

๐Ÿ‘‰Healers ๐Ÿ‘‰Educators

And so much more! This year, I’m celebrating the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife!



Nurses are vital to ensuring a healthier world for everyone, everywhere. They make up the majority ofย our healthย workforce and are critical to achieving universal health coverage. But we need more of them. This year is #Nurses2020 – the time is now to raise our voices for nurses.

Raise your hand if you’re a nurse! Now raise it if you know a nurse. If you or someone you love has ever been impacted by one.


See all those hands raised? That’s the impact of nurses. #Nurses2020

Are you used to seeing nurses in scrubs? Midwives in maternity wards?ย 

What about nurses in suits, at roundtables, talking policy? Midwives leading health facilities? Nurse CEOs?

Yeah, show us more of them, too. Nurses and midwives can do it all. Healers. Leaders. Educators. Mentors. And so much more.
