This year’s annual ceremony went virtual for the NSW Health Excellence in Nursing and Midwifery Awards.

‘Judging the finalists and winners of this key nursing and midwifery event is always a challenging task. There is so much to be proud of and celebrate. 2020 is no exception.’

‘This is the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife. It has been a year like no other where the contribution of nurses and midwives has been highlighted during our response to COVID-19.

‘If there was ever a time to pause and celebrate the 53,000 nurses and midwives of NSW – who make up more than 50 per cent of the State’s public health workforce – it is now.’

This year, two of the seven categories feature finalists from the Northern NSW Local Health District: Nursing/Midwifery Team of the Year – The Tweed Hospital Medical Team 2 and Nurse of the Year – Lismore Base Hospital Clinical Risk Resource Nurse Anna Law.

The Excellence in Nursing and Midwifery Awards were streamed at on November 26 on the NSW Health website: www.health.nsw.gov.au/nursing/enma.
