Nursing Now USA was launched on April 9, 2019 by the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill School of Nursing, the University of Washington School of Nursing, the American Nurses Association and the U.S. Public Health Service. As part of the global Nursing Now campaign, our vision is Nurses Lead America to Health. Our mission is to educate consumers, families and communities about how nurses affect their health and well-being, and ensure nurses are positioned to drive changes that will improve health for all people. One way that Nursing Now USA will achieve this vision is by actively supporting the Nightingale Challenge. For more information on Nursing Now USA email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Call for Proposals
Due by January 25, 2021
At no other time has the importance of nursing been more evident or vital to the safety, accessibility and affordability of quality health care in the U.S. To convey a contemporary understanding of nursing, Nursing Now USA seeks proposals for three commissioned papers that spotlight nurse innovations in support of 2020 The Year of the Nurse. Paper topics are in alignment with activities championed by Nursing Now USA (NNUSA), the global Nursing Now campaign, the World Health Organization (WHO), and the International Council of Nurses (ICN).

The purpose of the Nightingale Challenge is to help develop the next generation of young nurses and midwives as leaders, practitioners and advocates in health, and to demonstrate that nursing and midwifery are exciting and rewarding careers. The global aim is to have at least 20,000 nurses and midwives aged 35 and under benefitting from this in 2020, with at least 1,000 organizations taking part. Nursing Now USA is focused on leadership and professional development opportunities for early career nurses.
Be part of a global movement to equip and empower the next generation of nurses and midwives as leaders, practitioners, and advocates in health.
