Mundubbera thanks its nurses on international day

MUNDUBBERA celebrated International Nurses Day last Thursday, holding a breakfast for the hospital's nurses.

While it was their day to celebrate, duty came first as a patient was brought in by ambulance moments before the breakfast was due to start.

Wide Bay Health Services board member Paul Dare said this sense of duty was displayed in all of the nurses at the Mundubbera Hospital.

"Nurses here are so passionate about their jobs," Mr Dare said.

"They are always keen to show compassion to the patients and be there for the patients.

"They are willing to hold the hands of patients that need their hands held."

Nurse Alicia Tully received an Inspirational and Influential Nurse award.

Director of Nursing Rural Division Nikki Goodwin said Mrs Tully was a good recipient for the award.

"She's a strong advocate for education that improves nursing practices," Ms Goodwin said.

"She's a mentor to other nurses ... a pleasure to work with."
