Coffee on us! Acknowledging NT Nurses and Midwives

Flinders NT was thrilled to acknowledge Northern Territory nurses and midwives by picking up the coffee tab on May 12, International Nurses Day, for nurses and midwives based in Nhulunbuy, Darwin, Katherine, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs.

Flinders NT Nursing Academic, Erica Petrovic says, ‘Nursing in the Northern Territory is unlike anything that I have experienced before. It’s geographically challenging, often professionally isolating and at the same time you are never alone. The nurses and midwives who call the NT home, collaborate and form a collective that reaches beyond the vastness of the landscape. Nursing is not simply a position, it is who we are’.

Thank you to all our nurses and midwives for your diligent practices during COVID-19, and for continuing to nurture and grow our future Flinders University Undergraduate and Graduate Nurses.

2020 is also International Year of the Nurse and Midwife and marks the 200th Anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale.
