Being part of this once in a generation opportunity, to lift up our professions, to promote and raise the profile and impact that nurses and midwives have in their contribution to Universal Health Coverage and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, is a privilege. Ensuring nurses are leading at the very centre of global policy, to influence and inform evidence based decision making,  is a fundamental investment in our most priceless assets - the nurse and the midwife. I am honoured to be part of Nursing Now, and that Nursing Studies, The University of Edinburgh is part of this historic campaign and its legacy.
