Victorian nurses are on the frontline risking their lives, health and safety everyday to protect, serve and care for Australians throughout this pandemic. As the Australian government puts pressure on the hospitals to be prepare for this crisis, they haven’t recognized or acknowledge the toll its taking on the healthcare workers. Recent studies have disclosed that this crisis impacts the risk of infections and rate of burnout due to the high stress that is placed on healthcare workers. 

 

Victorian Nurses are the LOWEST paid of their profession within Australia, but yet they are still going to work everyday. Nurses are putting their health and safety on the lines, fighting for Australians because its the compassionate humans they are . There are many other governments around the world that recognise the hard work  their nurses are doing and are giving them a well deserved recognition, acknowledgment and supplement payment for the hard stressful work this crisis has brought. 
 
Whilst the Australian nation isolates themselves in the safety of their homes, they can know they are protecting themselves and their families. However, Victorian  nurses are going to fight to help the citizens of Australia day and night,  knowing by doing this is putting their families and loved ones at risk. This has caused many nurses forced to leave their home and loved ones to seek shelter elsewhere during this crisis. 
 
Please support this campaign to create awareness and change for all Nurses and other healthcare workers for all their hard work!
