Pauline's passion earns her Nurse of the Year

10 June 2024

Veteran nurse Pauline Glover has been named Beaudesert Hospital’s Nurse of the Year for her inspiring bedside manner and unparalleled empathy and compassion towards patients.
Pauline who is remarkably approaching her fifth decade in the field, said she had spent most of her career at ‘Beauy’ working in the Emergency Department (ED) with people who had become her much-loved work family.
“Beauy Hospital has just been such a wonderful, friendly and supportive work family and I am so proud to be part of it,” she said.
“I am honoured to be awarded Beaudesert Nurse of the Year and proud that I have been recognised for my contribution to caring for our rural community, but also so thankful to be part of the inspiring team I work with.”
Pauline’s love of nursing developed as teenager after a volunteering stint at Killarney Hospital.
“I fell in love with nursing and caring for people and seeing someone smile just because you listened to their story or helped them do something they just couldn't,” she said.
“For me, being a nurse means knowing everyday you will touch a life and a life will touch yours.”
Pauline's nomination showcased the positive impact she had on those around her, highlighting that she had left an indelible mark on the lives of those she had cared for, the colleagues she had worked alongside and the entire nursing community.
“She has been a role model and source of inspiration for many within the healthcare team, fostering a culture of excellence and compassion in the workplace.  Pauline is a shining example of what it means to be a dedicated and compassionate nurse,” it said.
