Mangaluru May 11: The valedictory ceremony of International Nurses Day – 2019 on the theme 'Nurses, a voice to lead - health for all' was held at Father Muller Hospital on Saturday, May 11.

The week-long programme was organised by Father Muller Medical College Hospital’s (FMMCH) nursing service department.


In her address, principal of Laxmi Memorial College of Nursing Dr Larissa Martha Sams said, "Every year nurses conduct programmes to remember Florence Nightingale. In the nursing profession, we face several situations and most of them are unpleasant. We may lose our patience which may reflect poorly on our profession. We cannot expect appreciation to come our way in spite of working hard. But in many ways nurses can make a huge difference among patients and become a role model."

FMMCH administrator Fr Rudolph Ravi D’Sa appreciated the nurses for their dedication. "Nurses are appreciated by all because of the knowledge base, skills, delivery of care and love."

FMMCH director Fr Richard Aloysius Coelho said, "Nursing fraternity is the most loved working force and the most appreciated by all."

Veteran nurse Jacintha Rodrigues was felicitated. Nurses with outstanding performance for the year 2018-19 were recognized and honoured.

Chief nursing officer Sr Janet D’Souza welcomed the gathering and nursing college principal Jacintha D’Souza proposed the vote of thanks.

    My hats off to all the nurses all over the world for their dedicated work they have been doing. Even my wife worked as Registered Nurse in New York for 30 long years and so did me in a reputed hospital. I know how it is hard in different weather and conditions. God helped us and now we are happily retired with a daughter and son, who are well settled in life in New York. I hope that all nurses will achieve their goals in their career.

    This is a legacy of Sisters of Charity. It is this order that commenced their nursing services several decades ago, Presently sister Janet D'Souza is called upon to keep up the tradition.

    Nurses who qualify from Father Muller's college of nursing have not only made a name for themselves but have enhanced the name of FMCI,

    Wonderful service by staff nurses at FMCI... Wish to congratulate them for their selfless service most of the times. I wish to encourage all to work in favour of patients and be blessed at all times. I think nursing profession is not money but surely these days money is the route cause selecting a profession. Nurses ...please be blessed to serve patients regardless of their status and money.
