Nurses across the district were recognised and awarded as part of International Nurses Day celebrations on 12 May.
Kim Olesen, Director, Nursing & Midwifery, South Eastern Sydney Local Health District, said the date marks Florence Nightingale’s birthday and provides us with an opportunity to reflect and acknowledge the work that nurses do and how they contribute to the safety, health and wellbeing of communities across our district.
“When I meet with you across the district I am always proud of the way you use your individual and shared nursing voice to advocate for contemporary, evidence-based and compassionate care,” Kim said.
“Your professional voice influences the delivery of patient-centred care and provides positive outcomes for the communities that access our services.”
