International Nurses Day 2016

Today is International Nurses Day. A fabulous opportunity to recognise and celebrate the extraordinary contribution to patient care made by nurses in our community. I particularly express my appreciation and gratitude to all our fantastic team of 600+ nurses and midwives at NHW who demonstrate their passionate commitment to the care of patients every hour of every day.

This years’ theme from the International Council of Nurses is: Nurses: A Force for Change: Improving Health Systems’ Resilience.

In celebrating the commitment and contribution of our Nurses and Midwives, NHW will continue to consider how we as an organisation can further enhance the resilience of our staff, our health service and system more broadly.

Best Wishes for a Happy International Nurses and Midwives Day and Thank-you for your ongoing care, compassion and service to our community.
