A ceremony acknowledging the Armadale Kalamunda Group's (AKG) latest nursing and midwifery graduates, and educational achievements of employees, was held on 24 January at Goline House.

A/Director of Nursing and Midwifery Tammy Lynch praised the latest cohort of 25 nursing and midwifery graduates for their commitment in their training year.

“There is a high standard of excellence which we see reflected in the graduates here today,” Tammy said. “Without the support of dedicated AKG education team and staff who are teachers, mentors and role models the success of the graduate program could not be achieved.”

Manager of Safety, Quality, Education and Innovation Jaimy Wisse recognised AKG staff who have recently completed further studies.

“The continuing education of individuals is important for both the growth of the employee and for the benefit of our consumers, carers and the community,” Mr Wisse said.

Also announced were the AKG Nurse and Midwife Graduate Program awards. This included the Preceptor of the Year, nominated by program students for preceptors who demonstrate the AKG values, and The Graduate Nurse/Midwife of the Year, nominated by managers, recognising excellence in the novice practitioner.

The AHS 2017 Preceptor of the Year was awarded to Registered Nurse Clare Dyson from Rehabilitation.

The AHS 2017 Graduate Nurse/Midwife of the Year was awarded to graduate nurse from the peri-operative program, Taylor McGuire.
