Nursing Now Patron, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge has shared a letter of support with the Nursing Now campaign, showing her solidarity with nurses around the world during these particularly challenging times, and committing to support the nursing profession into the future.
Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge became the Patron of the Nursing Now at the London launch of the campaign in February 2018. She is a committed champion of issues related to children’s mental health and emotional wellbeing and continues to show her support of health care professionals around the world.
On International Nurses Day, in this, the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, we are delighted to share this letter in which she recognises the strain that the COVID-19 pandemic has put on the nursing profession, saying:
“We stand behind all nurses and commend their bravery.”
“This international crisis has brought into sharp focus how much the global community relies on nurses and all healthcare professionals and it is clear that we will need to continue to champion the nursing profession long after the pandemic has ended.”
