  1. To 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.

  2. To Juvi, thank you for always smiling and being so supportive and caring at every appointment, phonecall and follow up. You are amazing. #celebratenurses #Ireland

  3. At the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis, I was nervous going into work on public transport. The cases were still in the single digits and there was no evidence of community transmission taking place yet. Yet you put yourselves on the frontlines, sacrificing time with family and loved ones, working long hours and working through the emotional impact of fearing for your own safety and the loss of people in your care. I can’t provide you with PPE to keep you safe and I can’t take the emotional affects of working in a healthcare crisis away from you but I can start with a Thank You. So thank you for your bravery, compassion and care. I wish you a very happy International Nurses Day and I hope you know how much you’re appreciated on the 12th of May and on every other day of the year.

  4. The most amazing kind woman. She saw me through the early parts of 5 of my 7 pregnancies, seeing 3 successful and 2 losses. Her understanding, caring and thoughtfulness made both scary worrying times through rocky starts and heartbreaking losses easier with her honesty and kindness. The second I heard about this site I immediately thought of her as her positive approach and help is inspiring and I will never ever forget how much her kindness affected me, and I try to pay it forward.

  5. To NICU staff at WUH 2015 and 2018, I will never forget your kindness and professionalism when you cared for my friend. I hope you get to see this and realise that you made an enormous difference. Thank you

  6. Thank you so much to all of the fantastic nurses who supported me through the delivery of both my children. You are all truly amazing people.

  7. I am from Bulgaria and I’ve got just few things to say in my country this is very invaluable to be a nurse but for me as a human being this is the most satisfying job. I would love to thank everybody who helped me in my professional career. And just to tell Nurses are great 😀

  8. My Owen had a heart attack when he was 45. The nurses in the ward at Waterford Hospital were terrific. They were so professional and completely on top of their brief. I think they saved his life. I was never so grateful. My own experience of nurses is equally great. I remember when I was totally exhausted, a nurse looked after me in DL hospital and it lifted me completely becuase I was so down dealing with Owen’s Alzheimers. I have never forgotten that kindness in that hospital that morning. Maya Angelou said, “You will never forget how someone makes you feel.” She is right – completely.

  9. Thank you nursing ‘angels’ for your care and heartfelt support for people in a situations in life. May you always be blessed with wisdom and inspiration in your chosen but very demanding role. Public Health Nurse Blacktock, Carew House, St. Joseph’s Crumlin

  10. I would love to thank all the Nurses, especially the very special ones who became a part of our family, who supported myself and my beloved wife during my reconvalestation after traumatic series of surgeries.

  11. As a child I had to have surgery on my hip and I still remember the nurses coming in and playing with me while my mam went to get coffee. They made it a less stressful experience everyone and I’ll never forget it!

  12. I’d like to thank the nurse in Dr. O’Byrnes Surgery in New Ross. When she helped me get my first bloods taken by letting me know what to expect, easing my fear of needles.
