MOTIVATIONAL: Provincial Health Minister Dr Nomafrench Mbombo was the keynote speaker at the International Nurses Day event at the Western Cape College of Nursing.

The contribution nurses make to society was celebrated during an International Nurses Day event held at the Western Cape College of Nursing in Athlone.

The day is celebrated around the world on May 12, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birthday.

This year’s theme was Nurses: A voice to lead - Health is a Human Right.

Students and staff members from CPUT’s Nursing Sciences Department were among the guests at the event, which was addressed by Dr Nomafrench Mbombo, the provincial Minister of Health.

She said many nurses were going out of their way for their patients.

“Today I want to acknowledge those people. Today I want to say that as the leaders, as the employers, we understand your situation.”

She added: “Let’s remember Florence Nightingale and what she stood for. Let’s remember that we are nurses and that we are the voice to lead.”
