NSLHD Celebrates International Nurses Day

Hampers, lunch, awards and games brought in this year’s International Nurses Day celebrations for nurses across the district on 12 May.

International Nurses Day is an important day on the calendar every year to recognise the commitment of our nurses and the amazing care they provide to patients.

Celebrations across NSLHD this year included an array of awards, food and games in what was a well-deserved day of recognition for nurses across the district.

Royal North Shore Hospital and Mona Vale Hospital staff competed in their own Amazing Race style event, with the Severe Burns Unit (SBU) prevailing as tough competition, taking home the trophy for the second year in a row at RNSH. The Urgent Care Centre took out the prize at Mona Vale.

Staff at Ryde Hospital were treated to a breakfast for those on night duty, and lunch for those on day and afternoon shifts. 

Nurses at Hornsby Hospital received a range of hampers, plants and food platters to mark the occasion.

Nursing and midwifery awards ceremonies were held across the district presenting nurse of the year and team of the year, amongst other award winners. 
NSLHD Director of Nursing and Midwifery Claire Harris said: “It was great to see the Northern nursing spirit on this day! Congratulations to all award winners and to all of our nurses across NSLHD for your achievements over the past year. Thank you for your ongoing commitment to providing high quality care, and for making this district a leader across the state.”
