1min.care wants to draw attention to nursing in a positive and easy way using many different stages within our society.
Of course, all colleagues in the healthcare industry are invited to applaud for their own profession.
Everyone chooses his or her own motivation to applaud.
1min.care encurages and invites to show solidarity to nurses from other professional groups of our society, to stand up for unity in their own ranks and to pat/tap oneself on the shoulders
1min.care and Nursing Now will put their strengths and work together to ensure that nursing is given its deserved value.
Nursing Now is a three-year global campaign run in collaboration with the International Council of Nurses and the World Health Organization.
Nursing Now is run by a Campaign Board made up of nurses and non-nurses from 16 different countries. The campaign is a programme of the Burdett Trust for Nursing.
Its aim is to raise the status and profile of nursing worldwide.
One minute of applause is very long! Clapping your hands for a minute for a certain topic releases a lot of emotions. Cheering, laughing, getting up, giving a standing ovation, encouraging each other, looking into the camera supports the applause. We wish you all a lot of joy.
1min.care – one minute for nursing.
Give nursing, our nurses and people who are being cared for, 60 seconds of applause for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The goal of the stage challenge is to collect at least 24 hours of applause in a video documentary.
24 hours of applause for nurses who are available to the people 24 hours a day.
The result is 1440 minutes of applause or 1440 times an audience that applauds.
A big goal – we are excited!
The participation is absolutely voluntary. Those who do not want to clap in the audience, just do not clap. Of course, standing ovations are welcome.
Everyone. All professional groups, institutions, clubs, families, schools and everybody else who wishes to be a part of it.
