End Notes

Methodology

  1. Using the contraction “nurs”, search each of the 15 PDFs here: www.gg.gov.au/australia-day-2022-honours-list
  2. Weed out those who work in plant nurseries 🙂
  3. Check ambiguities here: www.ahpra.gov.au/Registration/Registers-of-Practitioners.aspx
  4. Drop all titles and arrange alphabetically
  5. Repeat annually

Who Will Collate Next Year’s List?

I’ve been doing this blog post to celebrate nurses/nursing every Australia Day since 2015 (see meta4RN.com/?s=Australia+Day), but this will be the last year for me (see “Beginning of the End“). Why don’t you take over the job next year? As per the methodology above, it’s a pretty easy way to attract a couple of thousand hits in about 48 hours. More importantly, you will help spotlight achievements of nurses without resorting to those cringeworthy hero tropes (see “Batman is a hero. I am a health professional.“).

Change The Date

As I’ve argued since 1994 (see meta4RN.com/changethedate) it’s great that we celebrate the stuff and people that make Australia a good place to live, but it’s ridiculous to do so on 26 January each year.

Missing Anyone?

Please let me know via the comments section below if I missed any Nurses on the 2022 Australia Day Honours List. Naturally, I’m happy to correct any oversights.

Thanks for visiting.
