Na­tion’s top nurses

Isis Town and Country - - News -

COULD Australia’s best nurse work in the Isis or Kolan shires?

Bur­nett MP Stephen Bennett has en­cour­aged lo­cals to nom­i­nate their favourite nurse for na­tional recog­ni­tion.

The HESTA Aus­tralian Nurs­ing Awards are the most pres­ti­gious hon­our for nurs­ing ex­cel­lence, and will be held in Queens­land for the first time in Oc­to­ber.

Mr Bennett said it was a great op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple in the re­gion to bring na­tional recog­ni­tion to the out­stand­ing lo­cal nurs­ing tal­ents.

“Queens­land nurses have al­ways been strong con­tenders, with many ex­cep­tional fi­nal­ists and win­ners recog­nised over the years,” he said.

“I’m hop­ing to see strong nom­i­na­tions from Bur­nett and Bund­aberg this year.

“It would be ter­rific if lo­cal res­i­dents could sup­port th­ese awards in their lo­cal com­mu­nity.”

Mr Bennett en­cour­aged com­mu­nity mem­bers to nom­i­nate ex­cep­tional nurses, midwives, per­sonal care at­ten­dants and nurs­ing as­sis­tants in three main award cat­e­gories: Nurse of the Year, Out­stand­ing Grad­u­ate and Team In­no­va­tion.

Nom­i­na­tions close on July 31 with the awards to be held on Oc­to­ber 15.
