    A total of 47 of Western Australia's most dedicated nurses and midwives were chosen as finalists across 12 categories for the 2019 WA Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards, with the winners to be announced in May.


    This year's finalists represent all levels of experience and come from public, private, education and community workplaces throughout Western Australia.


    Finalists include a community health nurse from the Kimberley, a midwife from the Great Southern, a mental health researcher from Curtin University, a metropolitan cancer nurse and a number of nursing leaders across a range of specialties throughout our State.


    They have been nominated by their colleagues and patients as exemplary nurses and midwives who are making a significant difference to their professions, their organisations and the health of Western Australians.

    Comments attributed to Health Minister Roger Cook:


    "The WA Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards are an opportunity for Western Australians to publicly acknowledge the approximately 38,000 nurses and midwives across the State working in private, public and non-government sectors.  


    "Nurses and midwives are critical to the State's health system and ensure the people of Western Australia receive quality, compassionate and safe care. The 47 nurses and midwives chosen as finalists for these awards are among the best and most dedicated in their fields.


    "I congratulate each of the 2019 WANMEA finalists on their achievement and thank them for the valuable contribution they make to the community each and every day."
