Nurturing Care, Nurturing Nurses & Midwives have a deep love of our work and know the way that we all work with people is vital for the overall health and well-being of our communities. With all that is happening in our current times in healthcare, it is important to remember the enormous value in the true care of nursing and midwifery.

The more respectful I am towards my body, taking care of and being honest about what truly supports and nurtures it, the more consistent and able I am to sustain my work life

We are not responsible for our patients’ health or choices in life. They have lived many years before we meet them in the hospital. Just knowing this brings understanding; supports us in not being affected by their choices and/or feeling like we have to be able to ‘fix’ everything. 

Working together in collaboration will create the inspiration for us all to see beyond the challenges in the health care system and work towards our full potential within this profession
