A message from NZNO president Marion Guy.

marion Guy Nov 2012International Nurses Day is an opportunity to recognise Florence Nightingale, our founder of modern nursing. We recognise this day as a special day for our profession.

It enables nurses to get together to celebrate and to promote the significance of the role we play in the health sector – the fact that we are a vital resource for health!

I know in most areas there is a celebration which nurses can attend, share stories and reminisce about their nursing journey. I’m looking forward to spending time with fellow nurses today too, it is a fine opportunity to catch up with colleagues and friends.

On International Nurses Day I take this opportunity to wish all nurses in New Zealand well.

Take the time to reflect on the value that you add to the lives of others and to our communities.

We do change lives and pausing to celebrate that professional impact is important.
