Dear Nurses,
Today, as I join the global community to commemorate International Nurses Day, I would like to pay my heartfelt tribute to all the nurses of the past and present.
Bhutanese nurses have played a critical role in shaping our health system and in bringing it to where it is today. From providing critical care to a newborn and comforting the mother who has just given birth to ensuring that the baby grows up into a healthy child by administering all the required vaccines, from attending to the basic human needs of a bed ridden patient to comforting a dying individual who is struggling to take his last breath, our nurses have been performing the most compassionate role of all professions.
Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, our nurses rose to the call of the nation and without the slightest of hesitance served in some of the most affected parts of the country, without regret and with grit and vigor. Despite the uncertainties around the nature of the virus and greatly heightened risk of working in the frontlines, you stood firm at the face of adversity. For all the sacrifices that our nurses and healthcare workers have made over the course of the last 2 and a half years, I would like to take this opportunity, on this important day, to thank each and everyone of you for your services and sacrifices.
As we celebrate today, and in honor of this yearโ€™s theme, โ€œNurses: A Voice to Lead – Invest in Nursing and respect rights to secure global healthโ€, let us take a moment to reflect on the future and remind ourselves of the need to continuously invest in nursing so that our nurses become evermore resilient, informed and resourceful. Let us invest in diversifying the knowledge and skill sets of our nurses so that they donโ€™t only become Bhutan-ready but also world-ready. Let us commit to re-examine and reinforce the role of our nurses in addressing national and global health challenges.
Happy Nurseโ€™s Day.
Thank You and Tashi Delek!
