Nurses and midwives have always shared amongst ourselves some of the amazing, uplifting and special moments we experience at work. These stories inspire the nurses and midwives who hear them, as well as some who, after hearing such poignant stories, decide to take up the profession.
We celebrated International Midwives’ and International Nurses’ Days 2017 by sharing our stories in prose or poetry.
First State Super once again helped celebrate this short story and poetry competition by sponsoring the first prize of $2000 and the two runner-up prizes of $500.
