Nominations open for NT Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards

Dechlan Brennan -

Nominations are now open for the Northern Territory Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards 2024, including the Excellence in Aboriginal Health award.

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the awards, which celebrate the amazing work of nurses and midwives in the NT, it is the public's chance to thank and recognise the effort these health workers contribute to the lives of Territorians every day.

Nominations for the awards open today and close on Wednesday, 21 February, 2024.

Minister for Health, Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Selena Uibo said nurses and midwives who work across the NT "provide vital care when we need it the most."

"These awards are a chance to recognise their work as individuals, but also celebrate the work nurses do for our health system," she said.

There are 12 award categories, recognising excellence in client care, education, research, commitment to nursing and midwifery, and professional leadership.
