Celebrating International Nurses’ Day in style

News: Nurses Day 2022

Our wonderful nurses celebrated International Nurses’ Day in style on 12 May.

Celebrated annually on the anniversary of the birth of nursing pioneer, Florence Nightingale, the day is a chance to celebrate what our nurses do, as well as an opportunity to say thank you.

Nursing colleagues from across Oxleas showed their support for each other on social media and the Royal College of Nursing’s (RCN) celebratory film for the day features some very familiar faces – take a look!

Jesca Gudza, who works as a looked after children’s nurse in Bexley, and Sandra Hungwe, Matron at Meadow View, are among eight inspiring people featured by RCN as part of their celebrations this year, for going the extra mile to deliver the best nursing care.

Jane Wells, Director of Nursing said: “Thank you to all our wonderful nurses for every act of kindness, compassion and care. You all make me so proud.”
