NMBI Marks International Nurses’ Day
The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI) marked International Nurses’ Day on 12 May with CEO Sheila McClelland taking part in a live webinar and Director of Education, Policy and Standards, Carolyn Donohoe, sending her thanks to nursing colleagues for another year of dedication to the profession.
In her comments during a HSE/Department of Health webinar, Ms McClelland praised nurses for their dedication and compassion over the past two years and spoke of the need for more people to enter the profession, in particular graduates.
In her message to fellow nurses, Ms Donohoe said that nursing is one of those professions you will succeed in when you have a love for what you do.
“Over the past two years, you have shown yet again a resilience and dedication which enhanced the profession to levels higher than we thought were achievable as you worked through a pandemic and continued to offer care, compassion and commitment to the highest of standards,” said Ms Donohoe.
