If you have ever needed a nurse, then this next piece of information may not surprise you.

A survey of 35,000 people from 35 countries last year found that nursing is one of the most respected professions in the world.

Universally, we trust and admire nurses, and recognise the tremendous importance of the work they do.

And although all branches of nursing have their own unique challenges, there’s no doubting that the Emergency Department nurses are a breed unto themselves.

Here at BRHS our team of Emergency Department nurses have forged a spirit of comradery that comes from working side by side in a demanding and highly stressful environment.

When asked recently by the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation why she chose to be an ED nurse and why she likes it, Sue Hollingworth said “I love it because it’s different every day and sometimes a little crazy.”

We think it takes a special person to be an ED Nurse.

Sunday, May 12 is International Nurses Day, and we’re taking the opportunity to applaud all our nurses, here at BRHS and around the world.

You can show your appreciation too.

With this special online form, below, it takes just a few seconds to send a message to nurses everywhere thanking them for the amazing work they do.
