Team lunches, staff awards, scavenger hunts, late-night pizza nights, and more were among this year’s celebrations for International Nurses’ Day throughout the district. 

The day is marked every year on 12 May with these years theme being “Our Nurses, Our Future: The economic power of care”. Celebrations were held across Mona Vale, Macquarie, Royal North Shore, and Ryde hospitals, Primary and Community Health and the Adolescent and Young Adult Youth Hospice.

NSLHD Director, Nursing and Midwifery Services Claire Harris thanked all of the district’s nurses for their hard work.

“Nurses are not just caregivers; they’re advocates. They’re leaders, they’re researchers and innovators. Nurses are the backbone of our healthcare system with high levels of knowledge and skill to deliver complex clinical care,” she said.

 “I’d like to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude to all of the nurses within the Northern Sydney Local Health District family. Your dedication, compassion, and resilience inspire us all, and we are incredibly fortunate to have you as essential members of our team. Thank you for your dedication, compassion, and tireless efforts, not just today but every single day,” said Anthony Schembri, Chief Executive, NSLHD.
