Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards
Nominations for the 2018 Northern Territory Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards are now open.
The Northern Territory Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards recognise the outstanding efforts of nurses and midwives who inspire, drive and achieve excellence, and make a difference to the health and wellbeing of Territorians.
The awards are open to nurses and midwives registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia and employed within any Northern Territory health service at any time during the 2017-18 calendar year.
The 2018 awards see a total of 11 award categories across a range of nursing and midwifery specialist areas. These awards recognise individuals’ excellence in client care, education, research, professional leadership and commitment to the nursing and midwifery professions in the Territory.
The Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards take place in May during International Nurses Week and are celebrated with two main events: an official Celebration Launch held in Alice Springs and a Gala Dinner in Darwin.
The Celebration Launch will be held on Friday 4 May 2018 in Alice Springs. The Gala Dinner will be held in Darwin on International Nurses Day, Saturday 12 May 2018.
