Susan Stead wins 1029 Hot Tomato Nursing Award for August 2018

A recently retired nurse has won 1029 Hot Tomato’s Gold Coast Nursing Award for August.

Susan Stead has been working in the nursing industry on and off for over 20 years, and just this week retired from her position at Villa Serena.

“I literally just retired yesterday, so this is wonderful news! I am now going to just do a little bit of community nursing from time to time,” she told myGC.


“I love everything about being a nurse. 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.

“I feel very privileged to have been able to help people – it’s so rewarding.”

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

If you know a nurse or midwife who has made a difference in the life of you or your family and deserves to be recognised, you can nominate them for the award at
