It’s International Nurses & Midwives day today and to celebrate, Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital held their annual awards ceremony, recognising staff who have gone that extra mile.
The focus of the event this year was Males in Nursing and the importance of having them in the industry.
Today was also an opportunity for the Bankstown Sports Club Board of Directors to present $40,000 in funding grants for a range of scholarships to help further the education and skills training of dozens of nurses every year.
This money will go towards training courses, conferences and seminars, as well as university diplomas and degrees.
This is the 10th year that the Club has supported this worthwhile program which aims to ensure the local community has the best health care services available, with staff who are highly skilled.
Congratulations to all the award winners and to all scholarship recipients. Good luck with your training!
