CHIME Backs 2020 Year of the Nurse with 2 New Education Programs in the UK
By Jane Dwelly, Executive Director, International
CHIME International is working with UK nurse organizations to deliver two education programs for nurse leaders in 2020 – designated the Year of the Nurse and Midwife by the World Health Organization. CHIME will deliver digital leadership training to 70 nurses from the Florence Nightingale Foundation’s prestigious scholarship program, including nine digital scholars funded by Health Education England’s Building a Digital Ready Workforce initiative. CHIME is also working with the Burdett Trust for Nursing to offer Digital Clinics to nurse leaders who specialize in conditions such as autism and Asperger’s Syndrome well as mental health nursing.
More than 200 senior nurses in the UK will benefit from these two educational programs in 2020. CHIME is honored to serve nurse leaders in this landmark year for the profession, and it is fitting that CHIME is working in the UK, the home of Florence Nightingale, in the bicentenary of her birth. The Year of the Nurse will focus on the role of nurses in tackling 21st Century health challenges, and CHIME’s thought leadership and expertise will help nurse leaders make the most of digital health innovation to improve patient care.
