Better working conditions for staff on International Nurses Day
Today is International Nurses Day, where nurses all around the world celebrate their big contribution to the health system.
However, it’s also a day to have a conversation about our health system and how nurses’ working conditions can be better, particularly over the last 2 years under the COVID-19 pandemic.
The University of Melbourne has developed a program to recruit new nursing students and retain them in the industry, but this is not possible without the adequate conditions so nurses could perform their job.
