In recognition of International Nurses’ Day, we’re celebrating our many talented nurses who work hard to transform the lives of our customers and make a difference in communities every day.
It’s why this year’s theme ‘Invest in nursing and respect rights to secure global health’ is one that is close to our heart.
At Maximus, we help thousands of people find employment, access expert support, and stay healthy in their workplace or community. It’s important work that has a profound impact on the lives of millions of people every year.
We couldn’t do it without the dedication and commitment of our nursing colleagues. While they’re committed to supporting the health and wellbeing of the people we support, we’re committed to supporting them.
Suzie Frew, Head of Quality, shares why International Nurses’ Day and investing in nursing is so important to Maximus
“International Nurses’ Day always makes me reflect not only on my own nursing career, but how far nurses have come in healthcare in general, across Maximus and within our Assessment Division. From a small band of 9 nurses back in 2006 to over 600 today, nurses make up the largest cohort of clinicians in Maximus.
It is a testament to the extensive skills and experience that we have across our nurse population that we have been able to consistently demonstrate that functional assessments and occupational health are specialisms we can be successful in.
We also have a large number of nurses in leadership positions, and when you combine the experience and skills of our nurses with the commitment from Maximus to support, invest in and develop all our people this is a great recipe for a successful business. As we look to the future there are so many exciting opportunities to continue to transform and improve the services we can offer. After almost 30 years in nursing, I am still incredibly proud to be a registered nurse and to work for Maximus, knowing that I can make a difference in people’s lives.”
Investing in clinical careers
We are committed to investing in developing the clinical careers of all nurses in our business to enable them to use their clinical skills and experience in a new way. That’s why:
- We offer mentorship and training opportunities throughout the year to progress our colleagues’ careers in a way that’s right for them
- We hold annual clinical conferences and development days to enhance clinical knowledge and share expertise
- We have a dedicated programme for Continued Medical Education, with time allocated to clinical training
- We provide support through the revalidation process and reimburse the cost of professional revalidation fees
While International Nursing Day is an important day in the Maximus calendar, these initiatives and others are all part of an ongoing commitment to nurses across our business, and we’re working hard to ensure everyone has the support and development opportunities they need to thrive in their clinical career with us.
