Say thanks to a nurse

Cockburn Gazette - - OPINION -

THEY are there for us when we are at our most vul­ner­a­ble.

Now we have a chance to thank a nurse or mid­wife by nom­i­nat­ing them for an Aus­tralian Nurs­ing Award.

The an­nual awards shine a spot­light on the vi­tal work car­ried out by nurs­ing grad­u­ates, in­di­vid­u­als and teams.

HESTA chief ex­ec­u­tive Debby Blakey said nurses make a dif­fer­ence to the lives of many Aus­tralians.

“The awards are a way of ac­knowl­edg­ing in­di­vid­u­als and teams who pro­vide ex­cep­tional care and are also an op­por­tu­nity to high­light in­no­va­tions that lead to im­prove­ments in clin­i­cal prac­tice and im­proved pa­tient care,” she said.
