A new intake of 80 paediatric nurses has joined the team at the Royal Hospital for Children (RHC).
The new recruits have recently graduated and completed their induction course.
At a special ceremony the nurses received their final certificates from Dr Margaret McGuire, our Nurse Director, and Jennifer Rodgers, the RHC’s Chief Nurse.
Dr McGuire said: “We are delighted to welcome these 80 new paediatric nurses to our staff at the RHC.
“As a Board, it is always a great privilege for us to be able to support the development of newly qualified nurses. We are perfectly placed to give them a wide range of opportunities to put their talents to use in delivering high standards of care for our patients and communities.
“I firmly believe that by recruiting such a high number of graduate nurses, and continuing their learning and development, we are building on an already highly skilled workforce and ultimately ensuring high quality care for our patients.
“Having just qualified they have all spent a number of weeks going through our rigorous induction programme and are now joining their colleagues on the job.
“I wish them all well and hope that working with us is both fulfilling and rewarding.”
