From Sue Keogh, Outgoing RTAC Representative
As you return to your home cities following a successful FNA/FSA 2016 I wish to thank you all for the lovely words and beautiful flowers I was presented on Saturday. They are spectacular and the flowers filled my three largest vases at home - fitting to have a final conference in your home city!
I have been an FSA/FNA member for more than 20 years and it has been a privilege and a pleasure to work with so many dedicated ART nurses over that time and to serve on the FNA executive for 10 of those years. It has enabled me to travel extensively in Australia and New Zealand for conferences and also to Bourn Hall in England and Rome to attend ESHRE. I enjoyed my time on the Serono Symposia Nurse Education team and embraced the courses that the team were able to conduct.
It is great to see the progress FNA has made with the dedicated website. The level of excellence of each of the nurse convened workshops and conferences over the years just keeps getting better, attracting more attendees, at the same time as finances to send nurses away for education gets harder to obtain. Congratulations to Bonnie and Lisa for obtaining fabulous speakers on Saturday.
It is fitting that through perseverance and hard work there is now a dedicated ART course for nurses at such an esteemed institution as UTS. I congratulate Penny O'Donnell and her team for making this achievable and for sharing contacts on how to get funding support.
As I leave FNA and eventually nursing itself, I feel ready for the next adventures in life. Walking the Great Ocean Road, trekking and doing some voluntary work in Nepal and seeing more of my family on the east coast are all on the agenda in 2016. As nurses we tend to take care of our friends and family. In my case it is four generations of an extended family and many friends throughout the world.
I wish each of you well in your professional endeavours and hope you enjoy the experience of serving on FNA. It has been a fantastic and rich experience for me.
All the best,
