Lisa Fosternally, a nurse based in Melbourne, offers her message on International Nurses Day 2022. Lisa has been working as a nurse for 15 years.

“During the pandemic, it was amazing to see the job nurses did, displaying resilience, being flexible, and how they went above and beyond, upskilling to overcome the challenges hospitals and the health sector faced, in order to care for patients and those in need. We saw nurses who went into midwifery, ICUs, EDs, to support their colleagues. The teamwork and supportive environment has been really impressive.

It has also been really nice to observe how doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals have come together, checking in on each other and looking after their colleagues’ mental and physical wellbeing.”
