Coetzee"To me, the Emerging Nurse Researcher Award demonstrates that I have achieved a degree of success in my career as a young nurse researcher, and it rewards me for that success. It gives me the opportunity to benchmark with other young scientists across the world and to meet with other award recipients that share my same love for research." 


— Siedine Coetzee, Emerging Nurse Researcher Recipient
