CENA is keen to recognise the great work of colleagues and therefore has established a number of annual awards to acknowledge those nurses and teams that are making a notable contribution to emergency care.
CENA Emergency Nurse of the Year - Sponsored by Benchmarque
There are many emergency nurses who work tirelessly providing high standards of care, advocating for their patients, educating their colleagues, contributing to the evidence base and promoting the specialty. This award is designed to recognise those nurses. You are all encouraged to nominate an emergency nurse that you consider is exceptional for the CENA Australasian Emergency Nurse of the Year Award.
CENA Emergency Department of the Year - Sponsored by MidMed
Emergency Departments are busy and dynamic places to work. There are emergency department teams across Australia which have made substantial improvement to their service, have endured considerable challenge, implemented innovative solutions to problems and contribute to emergency care as leaders. If you think that your emergency department team is a team such as this then nominate them for the CENA Australasian Emergency Department of the Year Award.
Philippa Moore Publication Prize Suponsored by CENA
The Philippa Moore Publication Prize was established by the Emergency Nurses Association of Victoria to honour a highly respected colleague who made a substantial contribution to emergency nursing in Victoria. She was an active member of the Emergency Nurses’ Special Interest Group and the Emergency Nurses Association of Victoria, a positive mentor, a motivated teacher and highly committed to advancing the speciality of emergency nursing. Sadly, Philippa died in 2003 after a short illness.
CENA recognises the importance of publication to the practice and scholarship of emergency nursing and continues this legacy to an advocate for emergency nursing. The CENA Philippa Moore Publication Prize is an award of up to $500 designed to reward and encourage CENA members to publish articles that are relevant to emergency nursing.
