I am excited to announce that today I received the Certified Global Nurse Consultant Certification (CGNC) in the areas of Education, Leadership and Coaching. Thank you to so many people who have supported me over my career to date.

The CGNC program enables the International Council of Nurses (ICN) to identify and certify a body of accomplished nurses who will form a powerful resource of specialists to address the increasing demand for expert nursing advice worldwide. Certification as a Global Nurse Consultant enables nurses to contribute to various ICN initiatives and consult with governments, healthcare institutions and NGOs seeking the nursing perspective on the issues posed during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

Past ICN President (2017-2021) Annette Kennedy said:"Certified Global Nurse Consultants will amplify the voice of nurses in policymaking, improve the response to current health challenges nationally and globally, and provide advice to shape the future of healthcare"

The project runs from January 2024 to December 2027. At the heart of this initiative is a pressing issue: healthcare systems are significant contributors to carbon emissions.
