Happy International Nurses Day

News Icon

ANMF (Vic Branch) has marked International Nurses Day (12 May) and International Midwives Day (5 May) by asking members to send us a photo telling us what they love about being a nurse or a midwife.

It’s a great time to reflect on why we are a nurse or a midwife, or both.

‘Communicating with people’, ‘Advocating for patients’, ‘Being present in people’s most vulnerable times’ and ‘Helping women become mothers’ are just some of the statements ANMF members have made about what they love about their work.

Thank you to all of the members who sent us photographs for our posters and social media. The posters have been sent to Job Reps to distribute in workplaces. If the photo you sent is not on the poster make sure you check out our Facebook and Twitter pages and follow #anmfIND and #anmfIMD
