Nelson nurse honoured

16 September 2015 Nelson duty nurse manager Bridget Baldwin was honoured for her service to the New Zealand nurses Organisation at an awards ceremony in Wellington last night.

NZNO kaiwhakahaere Kerri Nuku says, "Bridget has made an outstanding contribution to NZNO. She has been a member of the NZNO Nurse Mangers Section since 2005, and a committee member and chairperson in the last four years."

"Bridget's vision to broaden the Section to include nurses with an interest in management was brought about by her desire to ensure nurses have a voice and support in order to perform their roles. She instigated the Nurse Managers website and contributed to the staging and running of two Nurse Manager's conferences, and an IV Therapy Conference."

"Bridget is a very organised and detailed person who keeps her positive frame of mind and sense of humour despite the demands of her position. She continues to support nurses of all levels and continues to fly the flag for Nurse Managers."

"It gives me great pleasure to present this award to Bridget. She is a very professional and inspiring nurse, and as her manager says ‘she simply never switches off!' "
