Message from the Chief Nurse and Midwifery Officer

I am delighted to announce the opening of nominations for the 2020 South Australian Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards (Excellence Awards).

Our nurses and midwives make a difference every day in extraordinary ranges of practice settings. Their contribution makes a difference to the quality outcomes of care for the South Australian community every minute, of every hour, of every day.

Each year we celebrate, recognise and acknowledge these nurses and midwives for making a difference to their profession and their community at the Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards. These nurses and midwives demonstrate a passion for their profession, go above and beyond and importantly they make a difference, to their teams and the community through their practice, leadership and research endeavours. The twelve Award categories offered cover all practice environments in which nurses and midwives work and in 2020 the introduction of the Consumer Appreciation Award.

Please consider nominating a nurse, midwife, or team working in any speciality area or healthcare environment whom you feel deserve to be recognised for their excellence and because they make a difference.
