Philanthropist and Nurse Heroes co-founder Sandi Nicholson emphasized: “There is an urgency to support our nurses and their families as we face a rapidly accelerating shortage of nurses around the world. If nothing changes, within three years we will have about 1 million fewer nurses than we need in the United States and 2 million fewer than needed in Europe, and it’s a similar story in countries everywhere”.
Adam Clyne, CEO of Coolr, commented: “The nursing profession touches the lives of all people and this new charity aims to recognise all the great work they do and ensure the profession is supported in the future. We are delighted to be working with this great cause and are particularly excited about Nurse Heroes Live, a concert with a stellar line-up of artists”.
