“Nursing is the profession that is at the intersection of all SDGs, we are the only health care workers that have access to the whole picture when treating a patient and this unique position, coupled with a demanding training curriculum, makes us the voice to lead,” says Dr Frances Hughes, ICN’s Chief Executive Officer.
