As we celebrate International Nurses Day tomorrow, we visited nurses on our Sugar Glider, Cockatoo and Koala wards to find out why they wanted to become nurses.
“I wanted to become a nurse so I could care for people in their most vulnerable state, I think it’s a privilege to do my job every day!” Clare, Sugar Glider.
“I wanted to become a nurse so I could look after families and kids when they’re at their most vulnerable. I love being able to help patients get healthy and back home.” Maddie, Sugar Glider.
“I love caring for people and knew I wanted to work in healthcare. I chose nursing because my mum said I would be a good nurse.” Luca, Cockatoo.
“I wanted to become a nurse after I had some friends who became unwell in their 20s. I thought that caring for them, and for other people in need, would be a great job.” Bec, Cockatoo
“I’m a nurse because I wanted to be involved in families lives when they’re feeling vulnerable and do what I could to help care for them.” Clare, Cockatoo
“I was inspired by my mum, dad and auntie who are all nurses.” Jenna, Koala Ward
“I love kids and knew I wanted to work in healthcare, so working as a nurse at the RCH seemed like a perfect fit!” Sophie, Koala Ward
