Noosa Hospital nurse wins Qld Graduate Award of Excellence
May 19, 2016
Nursing staff at Noosa Hospital have scooped the pool at the inaugural Queensland Ramsay Education Awards held in Brisbane on May 13.
Enrolled Nurse Linzie Robinson won the Graduate Award of Excellence and Enrolled Nurse Karen Habben was a finalist in the Preceptor of the Year Award.
Judy Beazley, Director of Clinical Services at Noosa Hospital said Linzie’s performance as a graduate has been exemplary.
“From the outset she has demonstrated the Ramsay Way values – caring, progressive, enjoys her work and uses a positive spirit to succeed. Her achievement is all the more remarkable because there were a number of Registered Nurses and Midwives nominated and yet it was Linzie’s achievements that captured the judge’s attention,” she said.
“We couldn’t be happier and prouder of Linzie for her Graduate Award win and overall, to have two outstanding Enrolled Nurses as representatives of Noosa Hospital,” Judy said.
The inaugural Queensland Ramsay Education Awards are one of the highlights of the nursing and midwifery calendar, timed to coincide with International Nurses and Midwives Week.
“The awards give participants the opportunity to be recognised and rewarded for their contribution to the nursing profession and to identify individuals who are acknowledged by their peers and their patients as being outstanding,” she said.
Graduate winner, Linzie, said it was an honour to receive the award, made possible by the positive and encouraging mentors at the hospital that improved her performance, together with the great team she worked with.
“I’m thrilled, and it’s given me even more motivation to be the best nurse that I can be,” she said.
