"The WA Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards provide Western Australians with an opportunity to publicly acknowledge the approximately 38,000 nurses and midwives across the State working in private, public and non-government sectors.
"Nurses and midwives play a critical role in the State's health system and are at the forefront of ensuring compassionate, safe and cost effective care to the people of Western Australia.
"The 29 nurses chosen as finalists for these awards are among the best and most dedicated in their fields.
