Nurses: Leading Neurological Support to the Future

12 May 2021

Did you know, at MSWA we have neuro nurses who play a vital role in the lives of our Clients through residential, hospital and training teams? From assessing Clients and creating care plans, providing ongoing support and tailored advice, and liaising with other MSWA teams, hospitals and more, our neuro nurses are faced with complex challenges but fulfilling outcomes.

Today, on International Nurses Day we celebrate the impact our nurses have on the healthcare system and neurological care. Importantly, their influence on the personal journeys of people living with neurological conditions can help improve their quality of life.

Putting our staff center stage, we asked some of our nurses to answer one question: What does it mean to you to be an MSWA neuro nurse?

“Being an MSWA nurse means facing very many challenges especially within neurology, but knowing we are able to make a difference in someone’s life makes it all worthwhile and satisfying for me personally.” - Kareena, Neurological Liaison Nurse

“I truly enjoy and find completely gratifying working as an MSWA nurse. The ability to learn something new amidst changing and challenging situations keeps me engaged, interested and motivated in my work every single day.” - Neetu, Nurse Assessor

“Being a nurse with MSWA can be challenging but it is also very rewarding. As a nurse with MSWA I am able to work towards improving outcomes for my Clients to provide them with a better quality of life.” - Rochelle, Neurological Liaison Nurse

“It is a privilege to work within a great team of nurses at MSWA as we advocate and support people within the community.” - Jill, Senior Neurological Liaison Nurse

"Working with and leading a team of remarkable nurses, who are to me ‘Angels in disguise’, gives me my daily motivation. The true inspiration for us all as nurses, is the inner strength we witness in each and every individual we support at MSWA." - Vanishree, Nursing Manager

Thank you to all our nurses at MSWA, but also all the other nurses out there making a difference too!
