Eight southern nurses were honoured with excellence awards this week.

The awards, held on International Nurses Day on Monday, recognised nurses for their contribution to the health of the country.

The excellence winners were Carla Arkless, Nicola Braven, Trish Clark, Judy Currie, Sarah Liggins-Walters, Helen Peek, Robyn Dennis and Lara Gleeson.

Southern District Health Board director of nursing older persons, clinical support and community directorate awards committee member, Jane Collins, said the event was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and commend the nursing sector.

"Nurses contribute a huge amount to the Southland population across the health spectrum," she said.

Southern District Health Board (SDHB), Southern Institute of Technology (SIT), Presbyterian Support Southland, Southern Primary Health Organisation (SPHO) and Southland Nursing Research Forum awarded nine scholarships to the total value of $8000 to recipients from the wider Southland region.
