What can you do to shape a better image of nursing?

Take action with our plan to remedy the nursing image and the nursing profession

In Saving Lives, the book by our leaders Sandy and Harry Summers, there is an extensive plan laid out in the last two chapters which maps out how nurses can change how the world thinks about them.

But the plan is not limited only to nurses, one of the chapters is directed at non-nurses, who can do much to change how the world thinks about nursing. This is a necessary step to ending the crippling global nursing shortage.
