What does professionalism mean to you? c/o NMC - #IND2017


Dear Peter

We are writing today to wish you a happy International Nurses’ Day – a chance to celebrate the exceptional professional contributions of nurses across the world.
 
The professionalism of nurses and midwives has always been essential to good care. We all know professionalism when we see it – but there’s never been a single definition for what it means in nursing and midwifery.
 
So we wanted to use the opportunity of International Nurses’ Day to tell you about a new tool we have developed, Enabling professionalism in nursing and midwifery practice, which defines professionalism in nursing and midwifery for the first time.
 
We hope it will help you to explain and strengthen your own professional contribution as a nurse or midwife, as well as being a tool you can use to reflect on your practice when you revalidate.
 
We have each shared what professionalism means to us, and we would love to hear your stories too. Share your views on what professionalism means to you through this form or through the NMC’s Twitter account @NMCnews using #professionalism.
 
Best wishes, and happy International Nurses’ Day.
 
Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer, England
Charlotte McArdle, Chief Nursing Officer, Northern Ireland 
Fiona McQueen, Chief Nursing Officer, Scotland
Jackie Smith, Chief Executive and Registrar, Nursing and Midwifery Council
Jean White, Chief Nursing Officer, Wales

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I will investigate this tool and reflect - post about it in the near future as appropriate.
To nurses and carers the world over Very Best Wishes for #IND2017.
Please look after yourselves too!!*
