Here For Life – a celebration of nurses and midwives

The RCN Foundation is proud to launch an exciting new social media campaign created in in partnership with the Chief Nursing Officers of the UK and Republic of Ireland. 

Here for Life is a social and digital media campaign in celebration of the International Day of the Midwife and International Nurses’ Day. Visit the Here For Life website.

The campaign exists to raise the awareness of the public of the breadth, depth and diversity of the nursing and midwifery professions and the impact that they have on individual patients and clients and on wider society. 

The campaign also aims to amplify understanding of the professionalism, knowledge, competence and skill that nurses and midwives use every day to support life, at every stage, and in a range of clinical and non-clinical settings.
