2020 Year of the Nurse and Midwife

Posted 21 days ago

As you know, the World Health Assembly, the governing body of the World Health Organization (WHO), designated 2020 as the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife to advance nurses' and midwives' vital position in transforming healthcare around the world. It also is in honor of the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth.
As we begin our celebration, we would like for you to celebrate by sharing a picture or story about the first APRN, Dr. Loretta Ford, the first midwife, or the first influential APRN you encountered before or during your career.
Three stories will be entered into a drawing for one free admission to the 5th Annual Conference in Franklin, TN on April 16-19, 2020.
