Nurses and Nurse-midwives day

Firstly, on behalf of Seychelles Nurses and Midwives Council, may I wish you all a Happy Nurses Day. It is also a time for us to reflect on our profession individually and collectively, so it remains relevant within the health and social milieu. We have seen how visible nurses have been lately due to the effectiveness of their services as front line health workers, during the Covid-19 pandemic. Nurses have selflessly contributed to the well-being of those they have vouched to serve. For this we are grateful and commend you all for your devotion and compassionate care.

In 2020, it was on the brink of nurses' day celebration that the health authority imposed restrictions due to the emergence of covid-19 pandemic in our country, however this year we have been caught in the surge. Nevertheless despite the challenges of the moment, we still have to remember our nurses on this special day. We also have special thought for those who have left this world and observe a moment of silence as a sign of respect.

With these few words I will share a few words of reflection on Nursing Regulation as a nursing pillar of the profession in Seychelles.

Bon Courage, and accept heart felt appreciation for all that you do to bring better health care in your chosen profession as a nurse. Keep safe!
