Our thoughts and prayers are with our nursing community; particularly those who have lost loved ones. The year 2020 is the International year of the nurse and it is heartening to see the footage of people around the world clapping, cheering and showing gratitude for our nurses and healthcare workers.
The world has never been so dependent on the resilience of nurses. We have an innate ability to deal with uncertainties and brace for shifts of unknown clinical challenges. Despite what is thrown at us we turn around and return the next day or night and do it all again. We are human, we are fearful and anxious, we do cry and weep but we are made stronger by our conviction to provide care with compassion.
The world acknowledges that nurses are the mainstay of this battle against Covid-19, and recognition is so important during this pandemic. Please keep safe, stay strong, take care of yourself as well as others and we will look back on this knowing that the world did recognise our courage and dedication to those that need our care.
