Blacktown Hospital emergency department nurses have celebrated International Emergency Nurses Day, which honours the hard work and dedication of a group of people who work tirelessly providing care and treating patients around the clock.

Emergency nursing is a demanding field: the Nurse in Australia site describes it like this:

“It can be the best in terms of being ready for anything, expecting the unexpected, being challenged almost daily, testing your patience, tolerance and sanity, and facing really tough circumstances.

“It can be the worst in terms of being ready for anything, expecting the unexpected, being challenged almost daily…. you get the picture!”

Celebrations at Blacktown on October 10 included a photo booth, games, a barista and food trucks that supplied lunch.
