Over 100 new nursing and midwifery graduates are launching their careers at Wyong and Gosford Hospitals.
Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, said nurses and midwives play a crucial role in the health system.
“Around the clock, 365 days a year, our nurses and midwives are on the front line of the NSW health system,” Crouch said.
“Being the very proud husband of a nurse has given me an insight into the dedication of staff at Gosford and Wyong Hospitals.
“Working as a health care professional is more than a job, it’s a vocation.
“I can’t thank our new graduates enough for choosing a career in caring for the sick and vulnerable in our community.
“The new nurses and midwives will be working in a range of clinical settings including surgical and medical specialties, paediatrics, community, mental health and maternity,” Crouch said.
Member of the Legislative Council, Taylor Martin, said the NSW Liberal Government has a strong track record of consistently increasing the number of nurses and midwives in public hospitals.
“Between June, 2012 and June, 2018, an additional 353 nursing staff have been employed at Gosford and Wyong Hospitals alone.”
