KNOW AN OUTSTANDING LOCAL NURSE OR MIDWIFE?

MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has today called on the community to nominate outstanding local nurses and midwives for the 2015 Excellence in Nursing and Midwifery Awards.

 

Mr Marshall said the awards were a great way to recognise the hard work and dedication of the region’s nurses and midwives.

 

“The awards shine the light on the work that largely goes unnoticed in our local hospitals and health facilities every day,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“As the frontline heroes in our hospitals, our nurses and midwives deserve recognition for their humility and passion for their work.

 

“If you work with, have been cared for or know of an exceptional nurse or midwife, please nominate them – they deserve to be recognised for what they do for our communities.”

 

The third annual Excellence in Nursing and Midwifery Awards will be presented in the following categories:

  • Judith Meppem Lifetime Achievement Award
  • Excellence in Nursing – Registered Nurse
  • Excellence in Midwifery
  • Excellence in Nursing – Enrolled Nurse
  • Excellence in Nursing/Midwifery – Assistant in Nursing / Assistant in Midwifery
  • Excellence in Leadership
  • Excellence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Care
  • Excellence in Innovation in Education
  • Excellence in Innovation in Research
  • Excellence in Nursing/Midwifery – Graduate (recognising Registered Nurses, Registered Midwives and Enrolled Nurses who completed their first year of practice in 2014)
  • Consumer Appreciation Award

 

Mr Marshall said the awards were created to highlight the incredible work of the 48,000 nurses and midwives who work in the state’s public health system.

 

“I encourage community members, patients, colleagues and professionals to nominate nurses and midwives who demonstrate excellence and make a difference to the lives of their patients,” he said.

 

Nominations open today and close on June 10. To nominate, go to: http://www.nursingmidwiferyawards.health.nsw.gov.au
