2021 Tasmanian Nursing and Midwifery Symposium & Awards - 'Power, Passion and Possibilities'

The Office of the Chief Nurse and Midwife is delighted to invite all nurses and midwives to our annual Symposium and Awards in Hobart on 19 November 2021.

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.
