ANMF Student of the Year Award
Master of Nursing Science student Georgia Borrack was awarded the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation's Student of the Year Award for 2016.
On the evening of the awards, Ms Fitzpatrick (the Secretary of the Victorian Branch of the ANMF) introduced the awards by saying:
“Toward the end of the academic year the ANMF contacts the nursing and midwifery faculty of each University, TAFE and RTO and invites them to nominate a student who not only have a strong academic record but who develop other qualities which are intrinsic to excellence in nursing and midwifery. The citations we received about these students were quite inspirational and I believe that the future of our professions is in very good hands if these are anything to go by. While the award recipients have all achieved high academic results, their other qualities have included leadership, caring, excellent rapport with patients and staff, caring and empathetic manner toward patients and relatives, team players, motivated and focused, and supportive of their peers.”
Georgia has been an outstanding ambassador for the Master of Nursing Science program.
