Neonatal Nurse of the Year Award - Fisher & Paykel Travel Scholarship

The Neonatal Nurses College has great pleasure in announcing that Fisher and Paykel will continue to support The Neonatal Nurse of the Year Award, which was established in 2014.

This award is to recognise an individual nurse and the contribution he or she has made to their organisation and the wider community – locally, nationally or internationally.

An award for excellence, research, innovation and contribution to neonatal nursing is being offered by means of a travel scholarship – value of $2,000 (NZD). It is to be used for travel to further develop the award recipient's career, e.g. for attendance at a scientific meeting or conference, or to enable a visit to an overseas neonatal unit.

The Neonatal Nurse of the Year Award will be awarded at the 2016 NNCA Conference.

Applications will be judged by the NNCA Executive Committee.

We are very grateful to Fisher & Paykel, who continue to support the Neonatal Nurses College of Aotearoa.  A big thank you to them.
