Scott Black wins 1029 Hot Tomato Gold Coast Nursing Award for February 2018

An Enrolled Nurse at Gold Coast University Hospital has taken out the 1029 Hot Tomato Gold Coast Nursing Award for February.

Scott Black has worked as a nurse for close to 20 years, 11 spent here on the Gold Coast.

“I work mainly with patients undergoing gastrointestinal surgery, colonoscopies and those with liver issues. It’s a great feeling helping people and watching them go home well,” he told myGC.


Scott told myGC that the best part of his job is the team he gets to work with day in, day out.

“I absolutely love the team I work with – they are a great bunch of people. There are great days, but there are a lot of tough days too and I couldn’t get through those days without them.”

Along with a certificate, Scott wins $250 and is now a finalist in the Annual Awards where he could be awarded the annual winner’s cash prize of $5,000.
