ACT Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards

International Nurses and Midwives Week 2017

ACT Nursing & Midwifery Excellence Awards 2017

Globally, nurses and midwives are recognised every year through:

  • The International Day of the Midwife which is celebrated annually on 5 May.

    In 2017 midwives will commemorate the theme: Midwives, Mothers and Families: Partners for Life!

  • The International Nurses Day which is celebrated annually on 12 May.

    In 2017 nurses will commemorate the theme: Nurses: a voice to lead – achieving the sustainable development goals.

The ACT Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards celebrate the distinctive contribution made individually and/or collectively by nurses and midwives to the people they care for.
