As we launch our Edinburgh Global Nursing Initiative (EGNI), it is with the greatest pleasure and gratitude that both Lord Nigel Crisp and Professor Sheila Tlou, Co-Chairs of the Nursing Now global campaign, send their messages of support to us.

The EGNI has been inspired by the history of Nursing Studies at the University of Edinburgh as a pioneer, responsive and progressive across the decades. The Year of the Nurse and the Midwife and Nursing Now offers the opportunity for a new legacy to advance the evidence, innovation and impact of nursing globally.
