Last Sunday (12 May) marked International Nurses Day - an opportunity to pause and reflect on the unwavering dedication and expertise of our incredible nursing team, and the difference they make to our children and families. 

Coinciding with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, International Nurses Day is a day to celebrate our nurses.

Anne has been a Haven House nurse for 10 years. She said: "My role consists of caring for children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and providing every opportunity for them to enjoy life. I get to look after each child on a one-to-one basis which is special. It’s such an honour and a privilege to be part of each child's journey." 

Florence Nightingale once said, ‘for the sick, it is important to have the best’. We know at Haven House that we have the very best and we thank each and every one of you for your unwavering dedication, care and compassion. 

Aisling Kilbane, Director of Clinical Services, said:

“I’m delighted to wish all our nurses at Haven House a very happy International Nurses Day. Our nurses are dedicated to providing the best possible care to our children and their families, and I’m incredibly proud of them and the extraordinary work they do. Happy International Nurses Day and thank you for all that you do.”

To say a special thank you to our staff we celebrated with cake and presented each with a little treat.
