Update: We're extending the deadline! We've heard your feedback that nurses and midwives are feeling exhausted from the effects of the pandemic. To honour the pressure we're all under we have extended the deadline to March 31st, 2022. Your stories will help us start 2022 off right!
We want to celebrate all the wonderful friendships between nurses and midwives and the support these friendships give us.
Being a nurse or midwife can be rewarding but also challenging and stressful. Having a friend to support you makes all the difference. The friendships you make with your colleagues offer great support throughout your career, celebrating the highs and commiserating the lows. They share similar work experiences and challenges so they understand what you are going through.
As a way of celebrating and honouring your nursing and midwifery friends we are running a story competition! We would love to hear your story about your supportive friend/s. Share your story to go into the running to a major prize — we’ll provide:
- AUD$1000.00 towards conference attendance or education for one nurse and one midwife
- a copy of the 5th edition of Mental Health in Nursing with a chapter devoted to your professional self-care
Enrolled nursing or midwifery students are also eligible!
