2021 Tasmanian Nursing and Midwifery Symposium & AwardsPower, Passion and Possibilities

Friday 19 November 2021

A warm welcome awaits delegates at the Tasmanian Nursing and Midwifery Symposium and Awards to be held in Hobart on 19 November 2021.

We have all lived through the turmoil of 2020; so different to how we expected to celebrate the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife! However, there has been no greater example of how important nurses and midwives are to the health system. Our contribution was simply extraordinary across all points of the pandemic response. Congratulations and a sincere thank you to all nurses and midwives.

Globally, nurses and midwives are being recognised for leadership, commitment, and dedication to the safety of our communities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. This recognition serves to strengthen our resolve to seize the day, to harness the experiences of the past year, and to explore our professions and our practice beyond 2020.

The 2021 Symposium ‘Power, Passion and Possibilities’ celebrates the power of our professions, showcases our passion for our practice and the community, and explores the possibilities that await us.

As our state-wide signature event, this year’s Symposium will provide an opportunity to connect professionally and be inspired by motivating keynote presenters, and learn more about Tasmanian nursing and midwifery practice, innovation, research, and leadership.

In the evening after the Symposium, the 2021 Tasmanian Public Sector Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards will be held, and the recipients celebrated at a dazzling event.

See you in Hobart!
