We are enormously proud of Karrie Long on her appointment as Chief Nurse and Midwifery Officer for Victoria. Karrie’s service at Northeast Health Wangaratta spanned 15 years, joining us as a novice nurse ready to explore regional nursing and working in CCU, Education and Research while undertaking her post-graduate studies and a Masters. Karrie was the inaugural recipient of the NHW Research Scholarship in 2011, and was integral in the development and implementation of various patient safety committees. More recently, Karrie served as a NHW Board Director (2020-22). Karrie is a highly respected nurse leader and we send her our congratulations and very best wishes!
