Former NHW nurse appointed as Victoria’s Chief

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!
