This is my second year as Chief Nurse at ASPH, and I am filled with excitement as May 12th approaches. We have been feverishly preparing to celebrate International Nurses’ Day with our fellow healthcare professionals across the globe at the trust at our annual Pride in Nursing Day on the 10th May.
As I pause and reflect on my journey as a nurse, I am reminded of the vitally significant and unique contributions of nurses and midwives around the world, and the variety of ways we contribute to health, care and the well-being of people who use our services. I would like to say thank you to the nurses and midwives at ASPH who go above and beyond every single day, providing not only safe and compassionate care, but demonstrating their leadership and passion in highly pressured and challenged circumstances. As I spend time in the clinical environments, it fills me with pride to observe the fantastic care and outstanding services provided by nurses and midwives. I am also grateful for the contribution of our international nurses and recognise that so many of ASPH nurses and midwives originate from international countries and I hope that we have made you feel truly a part of the team.
