Graduate nurses welcomed to Mid North Coast Health family

Apr 24, 2024

Director of Nursing and Midwifery Caz Heise is making her way around the Mid North Coast Local Health District, welcoming new graduate nurses to each health campus.

Earlier this week, the Director met new graduates at Kempsey District Hospital, welcoming them to the Local Health District and the Macleay.

The tour continues until 2 May when Ms Heise will meet the new arrivals at Coffs Harbour Health Campus.

Ms Heise said she was proud to welcome a cohort of exceptional graduate nurses to the Mid North Coast.

“It is with immense joy and pride, we extend our warmest welcome to each and every graduate as they embark on this remarkable journey within the Mid North Coast Local Health District,” Ms Heise said.

“Their dedication to the nursing profession has brought them here, and we are thrilled to have them as valued members of our healthcare family.

“As they step into their roles, I would remind them they are not merely fulfilling a job description; they are embracing a calling to serve and heal.

“Their passion, empathy, and commitment will make a difference in the lives of those they care for.”

Ms Heise said it was an exciting time for the graduates.

“Embrace the challenges, celebrate the victories, and never underestimate the power of your presence and kindness,” Ms Heise said.
