Nursing and midwifery staff head high calibre shortlist

The South Australian Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards will be announced on Friday 11 May, with Flinders staff Dr Lindy King and Sharon Rance amongst the accomplished finalists.

Hosted by SA Health, the annual awards acknowledge the significant contribution that nurses and midwives make to their professions and the community.

A finalist in the Excellence in Innovation in Clinical Research category, Dr Lindy King’s nomination acknowledges her nursing research in the detection and reporting of patient deterioration by members of the community. This nomination also reflects her collaborative approach with medical practicians that have enabled the research, publication and practical application of her findings.

UPDATE: Congratulations to Dr King, who won her category and was presented with her award on Friday evening 11 May.

Sharon Rance is a finalist in the Excellence Innovation in Education (Registered Nurse/Registered Midwife) category; recognised for her innovative approach to finding and applying creative and innovative learning methods in midwifery education, including in the area of simulated learning.

Mid-wives across the world were recognised on 5 May 2018 for the International Day of the Midwife, with 12 May 2018 celebrating International Nurses Day.

The College of Nursing and Health Sciences will hold a morning tea this Wednesday 9 May for its staff, in recognition of both occasions and the contributions of its staff. The College’s awards and prizes ceremony will be held soon after on 23 May, which will celebrate the successes of its students.
