2020 is the Year of the Nurse.
At CNWL, we will be taking part in celebrating and renewing perceptions of the profession among our mental health, community, offender care and addiction services throughout the Trust.
We want to encourage new people to join the nursing profession and for the fantastic nurses working with us already, to stay. We’ll be showcasing careers in nursing over the coming months with stories from our own nurses, to celebrate what they do; the skills needed in the diverse environments the Trust offers and to help share good practice.
Chief Nurse, Maria O’Brien said: "Nursing is a fantastic profession which gives people a chance to make a real difference and I want to showcase the vast array and skill of our nurses across CNWL in support of this year’s Year of the Nurse.
“We will run stories focused on the specialities each month and video clips and have a number of volunteers who have come forward for this month! Let’s remind ourselves why we all came into this amazing profession!”
