Message from the Chief Nurse and Midwifery Officer

I am delighted to announce the opening of nominations for the 2018 South Australian Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards (Awards).

Our nurses and midwives make a difference every day in an extraordinary range of practice settings. They play a vital role in the delivery of high standards of practice, lead and contribute in the design of innovative models of care, respond to the community’s changing health needs, and provide quality care to the South Australian community.

The Excellence Awards highlight and celebrate exceptional nurses and midwives for the tremendous work that they do and acknowledge the significant contribution that they make to their professions, their teams and to the community through their practice, leadership and research endeavours. The eight Award categories offered cover all practice environments in which nurses and midwives work.

Please consider nominating a nurse, midwife, or team working in any specialty area or healthcare environment whom you feel deserves to be recognised for their excellence, their leadership and their commitment to making a positive and lasting difference.
