The team at Nurse Midwife Health Program Australia (NMHPA) says thank you to our nurses and students Australia-wide for the 2024 International Nurses’ Day celebrations.

We encourage you take some time today to recognise the incredible contribution you make to those you care for, in your workplaces, communities, and amongst your friends and family
NMHPA Implementation Director and Registered Nurse Heather Pickard

International Nurses’ Day is celebrated on 12 May annually to coincide with the birthday of Florence Nightingale. The International Council of Nurses theme for IND 2024 is Our Nurses. Our Future. The economic power of care.

Despite being the backbone of healthcare, nurses often face lack of resources financial constraints and workforce shortages. 

At NMHPA, we understand the frustrations and physical and emotional toll these pressures may place on your health. 

Often, we’re so busy doing that we’re not actually looking after ourselves. The result of this may be stress, anxiety and burnout
NMHPA Deputy Director and Registered Nurse Mark Aitken

Looking after yourself is essential when you are caring for others, as highlighted by frontline nurses and students who’ve shared their personal stories with NMHPA.
