Rebroadcast 4: The Real Game Changers

May 11, 2021


May 12 is International Nurses Day, chosen to commemorate the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale, the British nurse, social reformer and statistician best known as the founder of modern nursing. To mark the moment, we’re returning to an earlier episode, a pre-pandemic episode, and listening with an altered, heightened understanding and urgency of the need to raise awareness on the impact nurses have in transforming health systems, and the critical need for nurse leadership and innovation. The past year has certainly raised visibility of nurses and highlighted their essential role in improving global health. In this episode, Barbara Stilwell, PhD, RN, FRCN, a nurse, researcher, policy expert, and Executive Director of the Nursing Now global campaign, seeks to elevate the nursing profession, sharing the power of nurses connecting and uniting to tackle big problems like gender and economic inequality while improving health outcomes — the episode is as relevant today as when it first aired.
