An aged-care nurse who has been working in the industry for over 20 years has been named the overall winner of the 2018 Gold Coast Nursing Awards.
Susan Stead was almost in tears when she learned she had won the $5000 annual prize during a chat with 1029 Hot Tomato’s Flan, Emily Jade & Christo this morning.
“Oh that’s fantastic – I am going to cry! I am so grateful, thank you so much,” she said.

“I need a new car, so a little bit of the money will go towards that so I can continue to help people and get out there and reach them.
“Thank you so much Hot Tomato, you rock!”
Susan previously told myGC she was most passionate about working with the elderly.
“You get to step in to help someone, when others have stepped out. Often we fill a void and give support to patients when they have no one else.”
Along with a certificate, Susan takes home the annual cash prize of $5,000.
