It’s indeed a great honour and privilege to serve NNAUK as a president. I can’t praise highly enough the past/present executive members and general/life members for their dedication, skill, commitment and kindness. I would like to formally thank all the NNAUK members, Nepali nurses and their families alike who have supported the community throughout the COVID pandemic.
Despite the challenges of COVID-19, NNAUK continued to provide care and direct support through various wellbeing programmes that also included social media support through webinars and video awareness. The health and wellbeing of nurses are essential to further enhance the quality of care that they effectively provide for people and the community. Therefore, promoting the wellbeing of nurses and giving excellent educational and professional development support are our main goals. However, many obstacles still exist towards achieving these goals. For instance, financial stability, membership expansion as well as the general unity and integration of all Nepalese nurses are some of those prominent hurdles. Therefore, I urge all Nepalese nurses to unite under NNAUK and continue to provide your kind support to enable us to overcome these challenges and give us the opportunity to represent ourselves as one of the largest Nepalese organization in the UK.
