International Midwives’ Day – May 5
International Nurses’ Day – May 12
E ngā apuhi kaitiaki o Aotearoa, ka nui te mihi ki a koutotou.
This International Nurses Day (IND), we have made it a priority to celebrate nurses not just with words and gestures but by striving for meaningful change.
We know you are heroes. We know how hard you work, and the many things that stand in the way of you doing your jobs. It shouldn’t be like this. So with that in mind, I thank you and take time to celebrate you this IND. I want to emphasise that our thanks are matched by our support for you.
No matter the year, or the kaupapa, we will continue striving to make change for all NZNO members.
Ehara taku toa I te toa takitahi, engari he toa takitini.
My strength is not as an individual, but as a collective.
Acting NZNO chief executive, Mairi Lucas
