Laurinda Pericleous (Nurses Now) has been known to me for over five years.
As an employer she is honest, hard working, empathic, gracious and caring.
She strives for best practice in all she does. She has a great understanding for Aged Care and all its difficulties
providing a service that is greatly needed, that of providing appropriately trained staff at very short notice, to a very demanding service of nursing.
The agency endeavors to provide up to date staff in all aspects of Aged Care, which is supported by in house ongoing education,
and mentoring for new staff with experienced staff. Such is the commitment of the service to both staff and clients.
I am able to comment on the service from both staff member and previous client and would highly recommend the service to both.Pamela Avery-Pearce, R.N.,D.N.E.,M.C.N.(NSW), Member of the Nurses Now Support Mentoring Program
I am a Registered Nurse with over 38 years experience in the work force. I have known Laurinda Pericleous in a professional manner for 4 and 1/2 years. When I learned from fellow nursing colleagues that Laurinda was setting up a Nursing Agency with the intention of supplying experienced, committed nurses, I was very happy to join her staff.
In the short time Nurses Now has been operating, the feed back in the nursing community is very positive, and the business continues to grow rapidly. Laurinda, with her administrative staff of Nick, Grant and Annette, are very supportive and caring. The requirement for ongoing education and skills updating is being addressed, to my knowledge, a first for agency employment. I am also, along with 3 other highly experieneced RNs and educators, a proud member and mentor of the Nurses Now Support Mentoring Program.Naomi Cook, Registered Nurse, Member of the Nurses Now Support Mentoring Program
