  1. nurse uncut Congratulations NSWNA great to see innovation .I am sure that the site will be a huge success.

  2. I’m loving this site! It’s great to be a part of something that is proudly Australian! Congratulations NSWNA for giving us nurses a VOICE!!!

  3. WELCOME It’s always good to see new things, having this type of communication can help nurses help each other.As a nurse I always feel and think that we have great responsibility of looking after the welfare of our patient but always feel we are being underestimated by doctors and other collegues in the higher stage of the hierarchy..NUMS..Nurse Specialist..thinking that they are more clever that we are. I think the main thing we have to do is support each other to grow…Share what we know best and be thankful that others live up to what a real nurse mean..to think..do…what is called for by the situation not ignoring patient’s needs because you are nearly at the end of your shift spells a lot of difference…we dont need people going into the profession for the reason that nursing is the most in demand job and after successful completion of the course you are 90% sure of getting a job or at least the government is forced to employ you because of the demand on health..What we need are caring people that don’t mind cleaning patients when they are very unwell to do so.We dont need nurses that talk beautifully and do less patient care.

  5. great site I’m glad we finally have somewhere to voice our feelings/thoughts re nursing in this beautiful country. One of the major setbacks in nursing these days is dealing with angry/aggressive/demanding families of patients. Everyone wants everything done for their loved one while in hospital but nurses are stretched to the limit doing just the basics like giving the patient their medications, making sure they are clean and making sure they eat properly. Yet family come in to visit and complain of ‘dad not being shaved for days’. We would love to do these ‘extra’ (once upon a time routine) things for our patients but nowadays they are older and sicker and loking after their clinical needs takes up all the time during our shift. What are the answers? More AINs to do basic duties? More family involvement? would love to hear from other nurses and how they deal with relatives.

  6. patient care I was surprised to read that nurses are being asked to shave their male patients! We used to have “wardsmen” who cared for mens personal needs i.e shaving. Granted that’s a long time ago now but honestly I’m astonished! I agree that there is too often a lack of respect for nurses and their level of knowledge and expertise. Caring is a really undervalued yet completely exploited aspect of nursing. Nurses nurse because they care about people as this site is really highlighting. I’m so glad that we have a voice and a venue where we can discuss both the good and the disappointing aspects of our chosen profession.

  7. lorrakett Hi just join looks like an interest site, just hope it doesn’t turn into a place to winge rather something informative.

  9. kmac Well done on getting this up and running. I look forward to the forums and some insight to all the different nurses out there. Finally a place that nurses from rural areas can get to info.

  10. congratulations congratulations on this new website, I am really learning the value of sharing and helping each other in these online communities and now one for nurses too.

  11. Have you seen a better idea? Well done NSWNA and congrats on a great website/blog.

    The avenue for quick and easy communication for all nurses from around Aust and around the world is now open.

    Do you have a special interest group at your hospital or even a great social club? Why not tell us all about it and get it onto this blog and post some photos as well.

    As other have said it doesn’t have to be about how bad things are at work it can be all about how diverse and interesting your work place is now.
