Promoting a strong community of Professionals at The University of Queensland

Hello Everyone,

What an extraordinary a set of circumstances 2020 has brought us, it’s certain to be quite a bookmark in our history. Regrettably, UQPN has postponed our “Day in the Life” March event. Like many, this action is unprecedented and a decision, which UQPN felt was the proper path to take for our members.

The last few weeks have been nothing short of extraordinary and I would like to echo many sentiments, that is, thank you to everyone for your continued dedication during this difficult time. Aside from the information saturation, it’s important to remember that this is a time to take care of ourselves and each other.

As in the past (those of you who remember the 2011 flood), intense experiences provide crucial guidance at this time and we will resume normal operations in due course.

Information on COVID-19 continues to evolve throughout each day. UQ is working closely with health authorities and the government, and has prepared a great deal of material on COVID-19 (follow the link below: Corona Virus - UQ Community). I urge you all to take a minute to familiarise yourself with the sites and protocols for your health and wellbeing.

In closing, patience and kindness may be our greatest allies here. It is a tough time for the University, staff and students. We are confident that together we will navigate a path through, take care of yourself and support each other during the coming weeks.

Best wishes from the UQPN Executive Committee
Sue Cox, UQPN President
