We encourage nurses and all who support them to take time to reflect, celebrate and thank themselves and their colleagues as we recognise the work of nurses. We thank every nurse working across the diverse areas nurses are employed in for your skill, dedication and evidenced based person-centered care you provide.
Tessa Moriarty, winner of our 2020 story competition for nurses joined us on the podcast to share her story and wisdom.
On the podcast Tessa says:
“In closing the story, I finish with a deep and heartfelt honouring of farewell and thanks to the hundreds of nurses worldwide who in their efforts to treat those who caught coronavirus, got it themselves and died. All in the line of duty, doing what we all do and love. Caring for others.
…nursing is such a varied and worthwhile profession. There’s been no greater thing in my life other than to have been and still be a nurse.
Love it for what it is and what it can give you.”
I agree with Tessa and join the Nurse & Midwife Support team in celebrating your awesomeness.
If you need support or recognise that a colleague needs support, please contact Nurse & Midwife Support, the national 24/7 support services for midwives, nurses and students. The service is anonymous, confidential and free - just call 1800 667 877 or email.
Thank you for all you do, and I hope you know YOU are AWESOME.
Your health matters!
