Quality Care - everyone, everytime
Nurses Day poster
‘Happy Nurses Day to all our Nurses’
12 May 2017

Each year the care and compassion that Isle of Wight NHS Trust nurses provide for patients on the Island is recognised and celebrated on International Nurses Day.

Speaking on International Nurses Day, Sarah Johnson, Deputy Director of Nursing, said: “As Nurses, we know that we are working in tough times, and we know we continue to get out there and care for people in the best ways we can, day after day. You know you are late from shift, early to shift, take bank shifts, do extra work at home, lead projects, write policies, run clinical groups, support students, support doctors, support carers, and above all our nurses ensure patients and people are cared for every day. And that’s why we are celebrating nurses and nursing today and I would like to say a huge thank you to them all for their hard work, commitment, professionalism and compassion. Today is so important – it shows Nurses are appreciated and respected.”

The Southampton and Isle of Wight Royal College of Nursing (RCN) Branch supported the day with a stand at St. Mary’s Hospital and nursing colleagues supported the national social media campaign #nurseheroes and visited wards and clinics with a Nurses day ‘selfie’ board to capture nurses in their workplace.
