Logan Bayside nurse educator Jessica Staunton and LBHN School Based Trainee Program co-ordinator Karen Webster proudly represented Logan Bayside Health Network at the recent South East Region School-based Apprenticeship and Traineeship Awards that saw Savannah Tonga (Logan) and Tyson Dixie (Redland) announced as finalists.
Karen said trainees working at Logan Bayside Health Network won in all their nominated categories with trainees from Logan Bayside Health Network taking out two of the four region awards.
“This is wonderful recognition of the dedication shown by all trainees for themselves as individuals and for the program as a whole.”
Karen said 13 trainees (nine at Logan and four at Redland) had recently completed their traineeship with a graduation event scheduled for October 13.
“The growth of these trainees both in clinical skills as well as personal development is clearly evident over the course of their traineeship and it is a credit to all trainees and to the staff working with and supporting these individuals.”
Karen said she wanted to thank the many groups which had made the program possible for young, aspiring health care workers including nursing teams from across the Logan Bayside Health Network, Maxima Group Training, TAFE, the Department of Education and Training and schools and families.
