First Lady praises nurses

Torika Tokalau
Sunday, April 06, 2014

FIJI's First Lady Adi Koila Nailatikau reminded nurses yesterday they were truly commended for the emotional and stressful nature of their work in caring for the sick.

Addressing the nurses at their AGM yesterday, Adi Koila commended them for their long hours of work and how at the end of the day they could still go home and continue looking after their families.

"Nurses play a pivotal role in the social and economic development of a nation," Adi Koila said.

"Today, nursing has become more focused, organised and recognised. Not just as a profession or a job, but a divine calling."

She said nurses had the greatest responsibility of helping improve the health of the population and to contribute to the achievement of the millennium development goals.

"Nurses have the power to change the picture and to demonstrate to governments, employers, and society that they have the potential and are a vital resource for health.

"We truly acknowledge the tremendous work, the challenges and the sacrifices you all have to go through in ensuring that those that come under your nursing care are cared for and treated until they get well."

She reminded the nurses to remember the principles of their nursing profession which is the guiding light that must continue in their profession.
