We thought you may appreciate these inspirational songs provided by the Royal Melbourne Hospital Scrubs Choir:


Celebration is an important part of life. Taking the time to recognise and reflect on achievements and milestones keeps us all motivated, particularly during periods of uncertainty.

In this International Year of the Nurse and Midwife we want to celebrate YOU. And reckon you have a story to tell. Why not share it with us for your chance to win a great prize!

Each Australian state or Territory has specific information related to COVID-19.

Nurses and midwives are always at the frontline when times get tough. While we are educated to manage challenging situations, we are not immune from an unhealthy stress response that may drain our reserves and put us at risk of burnout or compassion fatigue.

Many of us are still reeling from the impact of this summer’s devastating bushfires and their aftermath. To find ourselves in the midst of another crisis can feel overwhelming and potentially even insurmountable. We are here to help you deal with these challenges.

We will be updating information here as the situation emerges and we would encourage you to visit us during this time for a whole range of support options.

Nurse & Midwife Support is available 24/7 nationwide to nurses, midwives, students and anyone concerned about the welfare of a nurse or a midwife. Call us on 1800 667 877 or email us. The service is anonymous, confidential and free.
