Recognised for mentoring excellence

November 2, 2015

Armadale Mental Health Service (AMHS) Registered Nurse Jamie Burns has been recognised for providing excellent guidance and support to graduate nurses as part of the Statewide Mental Health Graduate Program.

Jamie said he was humbled and honoured to receive the program’s overall preceptor award which he credits to those who have mentored him in the past.

“I went through the same graduate program and found it was very helpful to have mentors who were there to provide encouragement and reassurance to me,” he said.

“I am thankful to now have the same opportunity to support our new graduates as they gain the skills and knowledge for a career in mental health nursing.”

AMHS Clinical Nurse Specialist Caroline Dyer praised Jamie for his dedication to the profession and for being an inspirational role model.
