This is the heart of the challenge!

Idea is a POWER challenge for nursing.
The Challenge wants to draw attention to nursing in a positive and easy way using many different stages within our society. The focus is on the audience – this time nurses are the “recipients”.
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. encurages and invites

  • to show solidarity to nurses from other professional groups of our society
  • to stand up for unity in their own ranks
  • to pat/tap oneself on the shoulders

The applause of the audience can be a symbol / a sign for

  • recognition
  • appreciation
  • encouragement
  • attention
  • gratitude
  • respect
  • revaluation of the nursing profession
  • awareness and extension of responsibility for the current situation of healthcare, caretakers and cared all over the world


Start interview

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.

Nursing matters to all of us. Honor to whom honor is due! – 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.

Duration of the challenge

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.
