ACMHN's Mental Health Nurse Achievement Award
The purpose of the Mental Health Nurse Achievement Award (MHNAA) is to recognise publicly the achievements of mental health nurses, encourage professional development amongst mental health nurses, and promote the importance of mental health nursing as a speciality.
The MHNAA will be awarded to a mental health nurse who is beginning to be recognised nationally for their leadership as a clinician, manager, educator or researcher. For example, early career researchers, clinicians, managers or educators who are making innovative changes in practice or pushing the boundaries of scope of practice.
The ACMHN will provide the winner with a registration, airfare and accommodation at its 42nd International Mental Health Nursing Conference, to be held in Adelaide from 25-27 October 2016. In addition, co-sponsors Curtin University, WA will provide a cash prize of $1,000 and Wiley-Blackwell will provide a book voucher for $500.
