Our Nurses. Our Future. The economic power of care.

International Nurses Day (IND) is celebrated every year on 12 May on the birth date of the founder of modern nursing – Florence Nightingale. This day is dedicated to honouring the hard work and commitment to care provided by the more than 27 million nurses and midwives worldwide.

On this day (and every day), it’s important to not only say “thank you” to the nurses who have impacted our lives, but also to reflect on the ongoing contribution they provide to healthcare.

This year’s IND theme is ‘Our Nurses. Our Future. The economic power of care’. The theme highlights the crucial role that nurses play in not just providing healthcare services but also contributing to the economy. Nurses are an integral part of the healthcare system, and their work has a profound impact on the well-being of individuals, families, and communities. The theme emphasises the importance of investing in nurses and recognising the economic value of the care they provide.

“INC [International Council of Nurses] has chosen to focus IND 2024 on the economic power of care with the aim to reshape perceptions and demonstrate how strategic investment in nursing can bring considerable economic and societal benefits.”

Alongside the millions of nurses being celebrated this International Nurses Day, we wanted to shine a light on the dedicated enrolled nurses and clinical nurses at Trilogy Care. Our nursing team provide invaluable daily telehealth support, education, and key clinical information to assist our care recipients, as well as providing additional support for carers. 

Every nurse has a story. A reason for doing what they do and working in an equally challenging and rewarding industry. This is no different for the enrolled and clinical nurses at Trilogy Care.

Many of our nursing team were inspired by a family history of nurses and healthcare professionals.

“I was influenced by my family members. My older sister is a nurse too. My mum worked in aged care.” Yurina, clinical nurse at Trilogy Care

While others were curious.

“I just wanted to know how it all works and I didn’t know where to go. I spoke to different people, and nursing was one option. So, I decided to pursue that.” David enrolled nurse at Trilogy Care

And some were influenced by their love of people… among other things!

“I wanted to become a nurse because I love people and I love connecting with people. And I love gross things.” Isobel, enrolled nurse at Trilogy Care

One of the newest additions to the Trilogy Care clinical nurse team, Renu, shared her story of what inspired her to become a nurse.

“I’m from Nepal and I’m the first nurse in my family. My grandmother was very sick when I was in school. I watched the nurses work when I stayed with my grandmother in hospital. And that’s what inspired me to become a nurse. She passed away in 2014, and in 2015 I joined nursing. Studying as an international student in Australia and working at the same time wasn’t easy. I’ve done everything from customer service to cleaning, whatever I found. I paid all my fees myself which I’m proud of. It was tough. But I did it. And I’m here now. I work as a registered nurse and as a clinical nurse as well. Now, I’m about to start a new journey which I’m very excited to start. I have an excellent team here. Everyone’s great. And I think this is a good place to be.”

The incredible nursing team at Trilogy Care are an eclectic bunch with experience ranging from working in a dementia unit through to being a personal nurse for touring musicians.

“I’ve worked at some of the most major venues in the country, for concerts and festivals. Probably the biggest concert I worked on was Ed Sheeran back in 2021. And the strangest thing I’ve done was work as Meatloaf’s personal nurse when he was in Brisbane. That was interesting.” Bradley, clinical nurse team leader at Trilogy Care

Despite their diverse experiences, their passion for nursing and providing care to those who need it brings the nursing team together. For many of our nurses, including clinical nurse Rhiannon, one of the most rewarding aspects is the opportunity to form deep connections with their patients and families. “I enjoy the interaction with real people and being able to support them through their real-life situations and being appreciated. Just listening or giving advice or showing that you care is really rewarding. That’s the main reason I do it.”

While nursing is a fulfilling and rewarding profession, it also comes with its fair share of challenges. Sarah, one of our enrolled nurses shared, “It’s a hard job. And it’s not for everyone. It’s not something that you can go ‘Oh yeah. I’m just going to walk into it thinking that everything’s going to be okay’. Every day is different. You can have a great day. You can have an awful day. It’s one of those jobs where you need to be the right person for it.”

However, as tough as nursing can be, the rewards outweigh the challenges for the team at Trilogy Care.

“As nurses, I think we should celebrate International Nurses Day with open hearts, with a smile on our face. It’s not all about how you struggle but celebrating the rewards. Keep positive and keep going.” Renu, clinical nurse at Trilogy Care

In light of International Nurses Day 2024, nurses around the world are sharing positive messages of hope and encouragement for current and prospective nurses. To inspire the next generation of nurses to pursue a career in healthcare and be proud of the important work they do.

“I think the best advice that I can give to young nurses and budding nurses is that it’s going to be hard, but if you persevere, it will be incredibly rewarding.” Xerxes, enrolled nurse at Trilogy Care

To all the nurses worldwide, and especially to our Trilogy Care nurses – thank you for your tireless efforts, your compassion, and your unwavering commitment to excellence in healthcare. Happy International Nurses Day!
