Happy International Nurses Day to all nurses and nursing students, whether you are in Australia or another part of the globe!
This is a day to consider our role in the global health ecosystem, celebrate our achievements, our profession and our colleagues as well as to raise awareness with the general public about what nurses do.
At ACN, we are proud to be the professional and national voice for nurses across the country – nurses make a real difference in the lives of so many. We also wish to draw attention to the International Council of Nurses’ theme for this year’s IND, Health is a Human Right. We encourage all nurses to be a #VoiceToLead in ensuring health care accessibility with a person-centred focus across the world. Find out more about the theme in our Health is a Human Right post.
Enjoy your celebrations and getting together with your friends and colleagues at your nearest ACN National Nurses Breakfast event! Use the hashtags #ACNBreakfast and #IND2018 to share your events and sentiments of the day.
