Eddie Ngenda Award

As part of the 2019 Nursing and Midwifery graduation, the Nursing and Midwifery Practice Development Unit (NMPDU) for Logan-Beaudesert Health Service and Bayside Health Service is presenting a perpetual award in honour of Eddie Ngenda.

Eddie Ngenda was one of the longest serving nurses in Metro South Health (MSH), giving 53 years of service and upon retirement continued to serve MSH as a volunteer at Logan Hospital.

As a nurse, Eddie was a committed team member, who delivered exceptional patient care.

When asked why he nursed for so long, Eddie responded.

“When I became a nurse I could not imagine being anything else, we will all get sick at some point in our life and we are going to need people who love their job to look after us”

Eddie’s family will be present at the graduate ceremony and are honoured to have his memory and contribution recognised by the organisation.
