Celebrating five years of the Nurse & Midwife Support service

8 Mar 2022

In 2022, the Nurse & Midwife Support service celebrate five years of supporting nurses and midwives.

5 Years NMS

They recognise that nurses and midwives are an important part of their continued success and have written the following blog to celebrate the contribution of all nurses and midwives.

Celebrating all nurses and midwives

We reckon the achievements of all nurses and midwives are worth celebrating. Thank you for everything you have and will do to care for and support others. We hope you take a moment to acknowledge your achievements.

Supporting you when you need it most

When we launched in 2017, we didn’t envisage we would be living and working through the heartbreak and challenges of a once in a 100-year pandemic. It has been a privilege to hear your stories and provide you with person centred support, referral pathways and resources.

We remember

We remember and honour the nurses and midwives who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and died from COVID-19. Vale Jill Dempsey. Jill will be remembered for her compassion and warmth she showed her colleagues and patients working in the Emergency Department at the Angliss Hospital, Eastern Health Victoria.

Reminding you to make your health a priority

It has never been more important for you to make your health and wellbeing a priority. We encourage you to adopt our mantra: Your Health Matters.

You can:

  • read our latest newsletter: Edition 15 — Your health & wellbeing for resources and information to support your health
  • subscribe to our newsletters for quarterly updates and new tips and resources
  • write your roadmap back to better health and equilibrium — we are available to help you get started — phone us on 1800 667 877 to talk to one of our team.

Our promise at Nurse & Midwife Support is that we will support you to do it!

Share your nursing friendship stories (and give away prizes)

Good friends are there to support you, celebrate the highs and commiserate the lows. Nobody understands the stresses of the job like another nurse — and so we know that it is common for nurses to forge strong bonds with their peers and colleagues.

To celebrate the power and importance of these relationships we invite you to tell us your story of a special friendship with another nurse or midwife. We want to share them with our community and will give away prizes to one great nursing story and one great midwifery tale. Entries close 30 March 2022. Find out more and submit your story

Take a moment to celebrate with us

We chose this uplifting song by Calvin Harris to remind you that we are by your side!

We hope it makes you smile, want to dance, and sing along.

Spread the word

If you love what we do, tell your friends and colleagues that we are here to support them too. Hang a poster on a work notice board, leave brochures in your tea room, talk about us at your team meetings — you never know when you or someone you know will need support!

You can download our promotional resources brochures and posters or contact us to order them

Remember: we are here for you.
