Aurum celebrates its nurses

The Aurum Institute celebrated International Nurses’ Day by looking back at the oath of service each of our almost 300 nurses took at the start of their careers.

Aurum nursing staff recited the Nurses’ Pledge, as a recommitment to practice their profession with dignity.

The theme for this year’s commemoration - Nurses: A Voice to Lead-A Vision for Future Healthcare, explores how nursing will look into the future as well how the profession will transform the next stage of healthcare.

In these unprecedented times when the world is grappling with COVID-19, nurses have been at the frontlines, showing tireless dedication to the health of the people in the communities they serve.

Bulelani Kuwane, CEO of Aurum’s youth empowerment affiliate Youth Health Africa, expressed gratitude to nurses at Aurum for their dedication to the service of humanity.

“I would like to thank our nurses for providing healthcare services to our communities and being on the frontlines of COVID-19 while continuing to provide core services in HIV and TB prevention, treatment and care.” He called on all nurses to continue being the backbone of public health.

Aurum nurse Faith Majola said passion to helping others, identified as a child by her mother, is what led her to the noble profession. Based at the Germiston Clinic, she was among the Aurum staff  who were seconded to national duty to do contact tracing for COVID-19 cases at the start of the pandemic last year. “I am happy to contribute to the people’s wellbeing. To see someone who was sick leave with a smile and a sense of relief because I have helped them with their health problem, makes me proud to be a nurse. I feel fortunate to be part of a profession which contributes to the lives of individuals and society as a whole, in such a meaningful way,” she said.
