2023 State Conference - CALL FOR ABSTRACTS -
VPNG's 3rd podcast is up now!
October 8, 2022
Well, Perioperative Nurses' Week 2022 draws to a close today.
We here at VPNG hope that you have had a chance to enjoy a celebration at your workplace this year and taken a moment to stop, remember why you got into perioperative nursing and see how far you have come in your practice, and consider how our work changes every day as technology and medical interventions develop over time. And we REALLY hope you got some coffee from your medical officers!
What we do as a collective is extraordinary - people put their absolute trust in us while they are at the most vulnerable place they will ever be - unconscious, unaware, exposed, and completely separated from their loved ones. We become their carer, we become their advocate, we become their healer, we become their safe place.
Thank you, each and every one of you, for turning up every day, for giving it your best, for caring about your colleagues and your patients - please remember to care for yourselves as well.
And we'll see you for PNW2023!!!
All our respect, all our admiration to you,
