Nurses are at the center of care. It is our relationship with the people and their communities that facilitates optimized health outcomes. Throughout history, nursing, as a profession, has developed many theories and models of care that reflect a better understanding of the definition of health such as the social and behavioral determinants of health and the needs of individuals within the community. For many years, nurses have been the most trusted profession; their ability to gain trust is because they earn it.
We support the important work nurses and midwives do every day, and the impact they have on the people they serve, we have seen people donate PPE and food, bring thank you cards, and clap at change of shift to support our nurses and to show gratitude during hard times. And we here at Nurse Jobs Ireland have always celebrated nurses, noy only on Nurses month, but we celebrate them all year long. Celebrate Nurses Website is about positively recognising nurses and our goal is to ‘Capture Ireland’s Thank You’s’ to our Frontline Nursing Heroes on International Nurses Day May 12th. Write a thank you note, tweet, poem or essay, draw or paint a picture, upload photos – whatever way you want to express your positive recognition of nurses – just add the hashtag #CelebrateNurses to your creative endeavours.
We believe nursing will be resilient because caring about people is at the core of who we are and what we do, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. So this International Nurses Day, let’s celebrate nurses, but also let’s reflect on how we can contribute to the ongoing progress of the nursing profession. Happy International Nurses Month!
