Individuals are able to self-nominate or be nominated by colleagues. Please nominate by completing the online nomination form below. The Centre of Nursing Excellence (CNE) is accountable for coordinating this award.
Nominations will be judged by a panel that consists of nursing executive; interprofessional colleague; and a consumer representative from the PAH. Each member will have equal voting rights, although in the event of a conflict of interest (i.e. nominee is from respective work unit) these rights will be rescinded. The panel will utilise a Likert scale from ‘Strongly Agree that Applicant Meets Criteria to Strongly Disagree that Applicant Meets Criteria’ to assist in determining the top 5 nominations and recommend a winner of the award. The top 3 nominations and recommended winner will be tabled at the Nursing Director/Assistant Director of Nursing (ND/ADON) Committee Meeting. The ND/ADON committee will endorse the final decision. The top 3 nominees will be notified and invited to the award presentation for the announcement of the award winner.
Please note: Where the successful winner contains more than one nurse, the education bursary will be equally shared amongst the recipients.
