Celebrating Nursing at Oakland Care
International Nurses Day is celebrated worldwide on 12th May each year to mark nurses’ contributions to society, and this year’s theme is Our Nurses. Our Future.
ICN President, Dr Pamela Cipriano explained the theme: “Our Nurses. Our Future, sets out what ICN wants for nursing in the future to address the global health challenges and improve global health for all. We need to learn from the pandemic’s lessons and translate these into actions for the future that ensure nurses are protected, respected and valued.
The campaign Our Nurses. Our Future will shine the light on nurses and a brighter future, moving nurses from invisible to invaluable in the eyes of policymakers, the public, and all those who make decisions affecting the delivery and financing of healthcare. Together our future depends on every nurse, every voice, to not only be on the front lines of care but also be on the front lines of change.”
As well as marking this vital day with celebrations in our care homes, we wanted to shine a local light on nursing and celebrate the exceptional work of our nurses and the roles they play in the lives of our residents who rely on their care and support.
Our nurses have special skills, as they use their clinical skills to understand the variety of needs of residents and also deliver personalised and relationship-centred care. Our nurses recognise the importance of giving each individual a sense of security, purpose, achievement and significance by building relationships with residents, their families and various healthcare practitioners. The care takes a more holistic approach, and nurses must be adaptable, flexible and committed to excellence.
At Oakland Care, our nurses are passionate about what they do. This nursing strand demonstrates how social care nursing is about supporting people in the long term and bringing the clinical and the emotional sides together to care for residents.
Our nurses believe nursing is not just a job. It’s a way of life and not just care; it’s their career, and they are our tomorrow nurses.
We are so proud of all nurses; they have proven they are true heroes! Thank you to our nurses for going above and beyond your duties and caring for our residents like your family.
