I’m not usually one for doing big posts but what I’ve heard has just enraged me. Most of you may know, especially my nursing friends about a comment senator Maureen Walsh earlier this week. She was talking about a proposed bill that cuts nurses working from 12hrs a day to 8hrs in one 24hr period (that being another issue). Passed a comment about nurses having so much time on their hands that we must just sit around all day “playing cards”. How utterly disrespectful this woman I feel has been towards such an amazing profession! Yes being a nurse myself not every day is the same. We have busy days and quiet days (sorry to my colleges for saying the “Q” word). However even on the quiet days we rarely have time to just sit around, we always have something going on! Nurses are tired because we’re overworked and understaffed changing how long we work may make a difference but that is not the foundation of these issues. We need more staff, more money put into education to allow for well rounded competent nurses. I also find it so demoralising that someone who’s probably never worked a shift in her life and is so out of touch with the nursing workforce, can be pushing for monumental change such as this. However we’re nurses, well get up tomorrow go into work because we love what we do. We love caring for people in a time of need, we’re resilient, resourceful and should be respected. Not just anyone can be a nurse, it takes a special individual!
For people who would say “why I’m I bothered this was in America”. Changed that happens anywhere will influence nursing around the world.
One quick thank you to all my fellow, nurses, caters and support workers everywhere, you all do an amazing job and don’t let this put you down!
One quick word of advice to Maureen Welsh from a current Nurse. This is a helpful comment so please don’t take it like this. However if you really think that nurses set and play cards on duty, you really need to rethink what nurses actually do and if you can’t do that you should think yourself are you really in the right job? #nurse#nursing#nursesplayingcards#murse#carer#supportworker#hospital#maureenwelsh#vocation#nurselife#nurse 💉

I am so grateful to have worked beside such a phenomenal team for the past 2 years. ❤️

There have tears of both laughter and frustration and I am a changed person because of these people. For better and for worse. 😂
Now I’m going to crack open this bad boy and have a good old cry and then get planning our next giggle and drinks get together 🍾
Thank you and goodnight 😗 #lovemyjob#supportworker#newchapter

Fiction! Hepatitis B is not a genetic disease and is not inherited. However, it may be transmitted from mother to child during the birthing process. If you’re a health and support worker and want to learn more facts about Hepatitis B, join our upcoming Hep-B Made Easy workshop in partnership with @stvincentsmelbourne here: https://buff.ly/2uRIAeZ

My after-work funky fallen angel with scorpion dog leg looks interesting from this angle. Current mood: over-commited, over-stretched, over-worked, don't know which way is up, but surprisingly happy. Easter weekend means four days of supporting others to live their best life and in so doing, I feel like I'm living mine. 🙏That said, I can't wait for hills and Dales and long days with my love... patience 💜

Part of my job as a support worker/carer is spending a lot of time caring for folks that are reaching the end of their lives. Most of all, I am practicing unconditional love with raw, real humanity in all of its wisdom, vulnerability, and intimacy. This experience has molded my life in so many ways, teaching me the following:
✨ Make an effort to exercise your mind daily. Read something, learn something, go somewhere new. Our consciousness is a gift. .
✨The life we are creating now in our 20s and 30s are the memories that we will remember most at the end of our lives. The songs you love, the faces you know, the places you’ve been. These are the stories you will tell over and over. .
✨Keep moving. Go for a walk. Ride a bike. Clean your home. If you don’t use it, you lose it. .
✨As we mature, we slowly shed layers that start to reveal the true foundation of who we are. We might lose our independence and or our memory, but what remains is so beautiful because it is authentically you. #agedcareaustralia#supportworker#caregiver#lifelessons#lessonlearned#sydney#travelgram#gltlove#livesimply#thoughtsoftheday#quotes
