Nominations call for nurse awards

If you know of an outstanding nurse in the Illawarra or Shoalhaven, why not nominate them for the 2014 HESTA Australian Nursing Awards?

Nominations for the national awards, now in their eighth year, close on February 28 and nominees will be in the running to share in a $30,000 prize pool.

Winners will be awarded in three categories – Outstanding Graduate, Team Innovation and Nurse of the Year.

Members of the public and those working in the health and community services sector can nominate a Nurse of the Year, while Outstanding Graduate nominations must come from graduate nurse co-ordinators. Nursing teams can nominate themselves for the Team Innovation Award. 

Finalists will be announced on April 15,  with winners announced in Sydney on May 8. For information, visit
