The absence of a proper professional brand had affected the status of nursing nationally. Many of the current issues require reconceptualisation instead of radical solutions. Transforming the roles of nursing management and staff nurses can positively influence career branding. Leadership, knowledge and career path development constitute the core of the professional brand. Focusing on active branding will automatically sort out major local issues in addition to promoting global health coverage.
This paper presents the current situation of professional branding in Saudi Arabia and offers potential solutions for enhancing the professional brand for nurses.
