Look out for the Big Wrap Van now on tour!

To help celebrate International Nurses' Day, Queensland-based Regional Nursing Solutions (RNS) will be travelling across the state, visiting local hospitals to recognise and say thanks to those in the health care industry for the invaluable contribution they make to the community.

As part of their annual Big Wrap for Nurses event, Regional Nursing Solutions (RNS) will be travelling to many regional health institutions in their bandaged up Big Wrap Van and dressed to reflect this year's medieval theme, to hand out goodies and personally thank nurses across the state.

"There wouldn't be an Australian who hasn't personally been touched by the wonderful service nurses provide - whether for themselves, family or friends. They are there for us when times are tough and this event gives us the opportunity to say thank you, " said Sue Dunlop, RNS Managing Director.
