The Mother of Dragons and the Duchess of Cambridge now share a cause close to their hearts. Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has been announced as the first-ever ambassador for Nursing Now, a global campaign aimed at raising the profile of nursing worldwide – which also happens to be supported by real-life royalty Kate Middleton. “I know from personal experiences, and my work with the Royal College of Nursing (RCN), that nurses are the backbone of healthcare services,” the actress, 32, said in a statement. “However, they are undervalued and with policy change could achieve so much more in prevention and healing.” “Nursing Now aims to enable nurses to work to their full potential and have an even greater impact on health,” she added. “Worldwide, this means investing in nurses so they can take on leadership positions in clinics and in primary and community care. They should also be empowered to play a greater role in prevention, promotion and health literacy and increase the provision of midwifery, child and adolescent services. In addition, very close to my heart, is their goal to increase the numbers of advanced level practitioner nurses to help recovery inside and outside hospitals.” We are delighted to announce our first ever #NursingNow Ambassador, @emiliaclarke, an incredible actress and global nursing champion.

Last year, Kate helped launch the initiative – and she recently released a statement on the success of the program on its first anniversary. “I am delighted that, at the end of its first year, Nursing Now has grown internationally, with local and national groups in over 60 countries,” the royal mom, 37, said in the statement. “Nurses play a vital role in health teams all around the world, and this campaign is doing an important job of raising their status and profile globally.” Kate continued, “The dedication and professionalism of nurses is awe-inspiring. It is wonderful news that the World Health Organization Executive Board has announced that 2020 will be the ‘Year of the Nurse and Midwife.’ This is a fitting celebration of the 20 million nurses worldwide and we hope that more young people will be attracted into nursing careers to ensure that the principle that health is for everyone, everywhere, becomes a reality.” Kate’s great-grandmother, Olive Middleton, is known to have worked as a nurse during WWI, caring for wounded servicemen in a field hospital. “This campaign means a lot to me personally. My great-grandmother and grandmother were both volunteer nurses,” she said in a speech at St. Thomas’ Hospital in London last year. “They would have learned first-hand from working with the Voluntary Aid Detachment and the Red Cross about the care and compassion that sometimes only nurses can provide.” “Your dedication and professionalism are awe-inspiring,” she added. “I have been struck today by the enormous range of responsibilities that nurses have, not only in providing access to healthcare, but also in terms of providing a holistic approach to caring for our physical and mental health. You also promote good health and disease prevention.” (People.com Latest News) More
