Every year, the Victorian Order of Nurses celebrate VON Week as an opportunity to raise VON’s profile in the communities they serve. This year, they are asking the public to join in celebrating all of their incredible staff and volunteers, and their willingness to take action and help those who need it, during the pandemic especially, and long before. Look for the hashtag #VONCompassion on social media this week to read some of these stories, or check out their Facebook page.
