A Batemans Bay nurse is a finalist in this year's NSW Health Excellence in Nursing and Midwifery Awards.
Lisa Wilson was nominated for the Judith Meppen Leadership Award.
The community can cheer on Ms Wilson at 2pm, November 26, on the NSW Health website.
NSW Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer Jacqui Cross said the Excellence in Nursing and Midwifery Awards will be a little different in 2020, but will still be an opportunity to acknowledge nurses and midwives for outstanding clinical practice, leadership, and dedication to their profession and the people they care for.
"Judging the finalists and winners of this key nursing and midwifery event is always a challenging task. There is so much to be proud of and celebrate; 2020 is no exception," Ms Cross said.
"This is the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife. It has been a year like no other where the contribution of nurses and midwives has been highlighted during our response to COVID-19.
"If there was ever a time to pause and celebrate the 53,000 nurses and midwives of NSW - who make up more than 50 per cent of the State's public health workforce - it is now."
Other awards include Nursing/Midwifery Team of the Year, New to Practice Nurse/Midwife of the Year, Midwife of the Year, Nurse of the Year, Aboriginal Nurse/Midwife of the Year and the consumer-voted Healing Heart Award for exceptional care (Nursing/Midwifery).
"We invite everyone to join the celebration and encourage as many people as possible across NSW to gather in safe numbers to watch the show in recognition of the exceptional care of the nurses and midwives of NSW," Ms Ryall said.
