Welcome to the Medals for Nurses website

Our Mission Statement

Medals for Nurses is working towards attaining the recognition of nurses for their commitment and service to their communities by the State and Federal Governments.

Other Public Officers like the Ambulance Officers and Volunteers, Fire Brigade Officers and Volunteers, Corrective Service Officers, SES Officers and Volunteers and Royal Life Saving receive a National Service Medal after 15 years.

We believe that nurses are an essential emergency service and the back bone to any health systems. Along with these other agencies that receive medals for their service, nurses should be included. The Western Australia Police, in addition to national medals, issues a WA Police Medal after ten years of service to both their Public Servants and Police Officers. They Issue a Cadet medal for any Officer who was a Cadet before Joining the Police, a Commissioners excellence Medal and a Bravery Medal.

We believe that nurses deserve the same recognition.

Our Objectives

We believe that nurses deserve to be recognised for their commitment and service to their communities. Unlike other public officers, nurses are not granted the recognition for their service.

The purpose of the Medals for Nurses campaign is:

  1. To have the State Government of Western Australia recognise the service of nurses to the community by the implementation of a “Western Australia Nursing Service Medal” for Diligent and Ethical Service.
  2. To have all the state governments of Australia recognise the service of nurses to their community by the implementation of a “State Nursing Service Medal” for Diligent and Ethical Service.
  3. To have the Australia Government “It’s an Honour” recognise the service of nurses to their community by the implementation of a “National Nursing Service Medal” for Diligent and Ethical Service.
