DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / December 20, 2022 / Aster Guardians Global Nursing Award, an initiative by leading integrated healthcare provider Aster DM Healthcare, to recognize the contribution of nurses to the community, has announced an extension of the deadline for nurses based and working in the UK till 10th January 2023, given that London will be hosting the awards ceremony on International Nurses Day - 12th May, 2023. Applications from all countries, except UK, closed on 12th December.
Speaking on the extension, Dr. Azad Moopen, Founder Chairman and Managing Director of Aster DM Healthcare, said, "Given that UK will be the host country for the next edition of the prestigious award, we are giving a special opportunity only to Nurses residing and working in UK to make the most of the extended time and complete/submit their applications. We are also calling upon Members of the British Parliament, Local Government leaders, Public and Private Healthcare Leaders, NHS, Health Authorities & Associations, and people in general to nominate a deserving nurse of their choice.
"The UK's healthcare system has a long-standing legacy and as one of the first universal healthcare systems in the world it has been respected for generations. We are keen to highlight the work that nurses from UK have been doing for the local population."
Anna Qabale Duba, the recipient of the inaugural Aster Guardians Global Nursing Awards in 2022, said, "Never in my wildest dreams had I thought that one day I would be celebrated on a global platform like the Aster Guardians Global Nursing Awards. It is my honor to be able to share my path with the world, and I sincerely wish to motivate more individuals to become nurses and give back to their communities. The award of USD 250,000 will empower the winner to turn their dreams into reality. I hope every nurse in the United Kingdom registers for the upcoming Aster Guardians Global Nursing Award 2023, for which the deadline has been extended until January 10, 2023."
