Louisa Maua, AiN, has spread the good word about the NSWNA to her colleagues at Wyoming Nursing Home in Summer Hill – nearly all have joined the Association after hearing about the benefits.
Last year Louisa recruited seven new members to the NSWNA, and another three to date this year.
‘I encourage all new nurses to join the Association because we can’t afford to be on our own,’ she said.
‘When they raise problems about pay or workloads I tell then there’s is only one solution and that’s the NSWNA. It’s there to help us through good and bad times.
‘I sit down with new employees and have a cup of tea with them. I explain what the Association does, and the benefits of being a member. Mostly, when they hear the facts they are keen to join so I give them an application form.
‘If they are uncertain at first, I give them a form to take away. Once they have read the facts for themselves they come back later and are keen to join up,’ said Louisa.
