Emergency Nurses Week

Celebrated in Australia since 1989, Emergency Nurses Week, October 10-16, is an international celebration to recognise the hard work and dedication of emergency nurses all over the world. Nursing requires a special level of compassion and nurses working in hospital emergency wards face trauma and high-pressure situations every day, yet still return to provide crucial care for those who need it the most. Show your support, give thanks and join the celebration during Emergency Nurses Week, with a special focus on October 13 for Emergency Nurses Day
