  1. I want to thank my aunt Trisha who was the nurse who took care of my mother all throughout her difficult hip replacement surgery and helped our family is through the long healing process. It was a kindness I we won’t soon forget.

  2. Emma, Unit 8, National Maternity Hospital. Emma looked after our premature baby and ourselves going above and beyond her duty to make us all comfortable in a very uncertain time.

  3. We’d love to thank our midwife Jo Scobie in the Women’s Health Group in Kilkenny for all her help throughout the pregnancy. She was amazing and went above and beyond for us

  4. Thank you to all the nurses in the ASU in St. Vincent’s Hospital for making me a better nurse. A special thank you to Eimear the CNM2 for keeping me sane on multiple occasions. I don’t know what the patients would do without all the hard work done by the amazing nurses that work here.

  5. I remember Ed a nurse that could always get my bloods without poking me 50 times. He used to shoo the doctor away and pop, he’d have a blood sample. He was that good, I’d call his name in the ER in the hope he was working and I’d see him again. He also done the big cyst under my arm so thank you to him and all the nurses working tirelessly to take care of those in need.

  6. I just wanna thank the nurse I kicked in the ribs while giving birth to my lovely daughter. She cam back the next day with a smile on her face to look after me. 😀

  7. I want to say thank you to the nurse in Tallaght Hospital who sat and reassured me over a cup of tea when I told her I was nervous about having my first x-ray. She made that day a lot easier.

  8. Ava, Post Natal Ward, WRH
    Thank you so much for looking after me when I was in March 2018. I was very sick & you listened to me & was my voice to get me looked after quickly. I will never forget your care & kindness. You saved me, thank you & all the staff in Waterford maternity, in the ante/labour/post natal wards. I have great experiences of giving birth to both my girls there. Your care, compassion & kindness was really amazing.”

  11. The only time I was in hospital was 24 years ago and it was at Holles Street. I remember an amazing team of nurses who looked after me very well. They were brilliant!

  12. A nurse is not just qualified to deal with sickness but they have to be able to deal with mind, soul and body. They administer medicine but they also administer love and kindness. Without nurses in the hospital, they wouldn’t work at all.

  13. Thank you to the nurses in Basant Sahney Hospital, Secunderabad – India for taking good care of me and making sure I survived when I fell ill.

A very happy International Nurses Day to all the nurses around the world.

Thank you and happy International Nurses Day!

  15. This was my first pregnancy. I had my baby at the Evergreen Health Centre in Seattle. The nursing care I received post cesarean was superlative. The nurses were with me round the clock. They anticipated my needs and were an amazing support.

  16. I would like to mention my little sister Amuliya this International Nurses Day. She is studying to be a nurse. Amuliya, you have the compassion and now the knowledge to know what needs to be done. You will make a SUPER DUPER nurse! Happy International Nurses Day!

  17. “I lecture at a Nursing college in India where I teach English.

    Interestingly, their first year syllabus included lessons on Florence Nightengale, Clara Barton, Mother Theresa, Baba Amte and a poem called, ‘Thank the Nurse.’ A few lines stand out to me.

    Oh, the doctor is important,
    Of that we can’t deny.
    But when you get down to it,
    It’s the nurse that keeps you alive.
    The one who cleans your body,
    And bandages your wounds,
    The one who makes your bed,
    Gives you medicine and food,
    Helps you through your contractions,
    Until the pain subsides,
    Encourages you to make it,
    Till you hear your baby cry.
    Thank the nurse that’s nursing you,
    The one that nursed you through.
    Thank the nurse that’s saving you
    For saving your life.

    The poem is much longer but this part has always touched the mother in me. Thank you for the life saving care you give. “
