The Hunt is On for Australia’s Best Nurse!

Posted January 15, 2018, by Jenny Sakr

Nominations for the 2018 HESTA Australian Nursing & Midwifery Awards have opened, with communities asked to shine the spotlight on Australia’s most over-worked and under-rated worker: the nurse.

‘‘We want to hear from patients, colleagues and employers who have witnessed an extraordinary act by a nurse, or watched a nurse relentlessly put in the hard yards over time – whether it is a one-off deed or an ongoing commitment to the industry and patients,’’ said HESTA CEO, Anne-Marie Corboy.

This year will mark the 12th year of the awards, which give well-deserved recognition to nurses, midwives, personal care attendants and assistants in nursing, all of whom are eligible for the award.

Nominees from across the country will have the chance to win one of three awards: Nurse of the Year, Team Excellence and Graduate Nurse of the Year.
The $30,000 prize pool, provided by ME Bank will be divvied up amongst the three winners. The prize will be in a ME EveryDay Transaction Account and can be used for personal development or further development of processes or services in the workplace.

The HESTA Australian Nursing & Midwifery Awards dinner will be held in Melbourne on Thursday, 10 May 2018. For more information or to make a nomination, visit the HESTA awards website.
