At Xavier we recognise the amazing work that our nursing team do each and every day. As the world recently celebrated International Nurses Day, we had a chat to our very own Registered Clinical Nurse Cherie about why she loves nursing.
"I am passionate about healthy living, education, and caring for others, but more importantly empowering families to feel confident to care for their newly diagnosed children at home and in their own community.
I love my job as a community health nurse specifically because it encourages me to keep my skills sharp and think outside the box to handle the situation at hand.
It isn’t just about how well you can carry out care and support and the medication you give, it’s about the journey the child is on and how to give them the support they need to eventually live their life making decisions for their own health and wellbeing.
And what other job allows you to do health assessments in a colourful ball pit!"
We love this pic of Cherie and beautiful Saanvi. Sometimes a picture says a thousand words.
