  • To recognise and celebrate the often exemplary work of nurses in the younger age group who may still be in the early stages of their careers
  • To encourage younger nurses to demonstrate their commitment to the nursing profession
  • To provide an incentive for them to remain nursing in New Zealand.

Nomination criteria:

The public, colleagues or managers may nominate a young nurse for this award. Nominators are requested to specify how the nurse they are nominating demonstrates commitment and passion to nursing beyond the every day. This may include how the nurse:

  • Shows compassion or courage beyond what is expected in their role as a nurse;

  • Has overcome major challenges to deliver exceptional care.

Nominees may be registered or enrolled nurses, may be new graduates, do not have to be in paid nursing work, must be under the age of 31 as at December 31st 2021, be resident in New Zealand, and a current financial member of NZNO.

Judges will be looking for strong, detailed applications that clearly evidence the strengths and achievements of the nominee. In addition to giving evidence of how the nominee meets the nomination criteria listed above, further aspects that the judges will be considering are as follows:

  • Is there a particular project that the nurse has been involved in or is it a general, all round nomination?
  • In what way are any outcomes demonstrable e.g. has the nurse been accepted onto a programme by merit or have patient outcomes demonstrably improved?
  • Has the nominee contributed in a special way to a community or culture that stands out?

The winner will receive a trophy and a cash prize (of which 50% must go toward further education / professional development). Up to two runners-up will receive a runner-up certificate and a book voucher to the value of $200. All nominees will receive a certificate recognising their nomination.
