Andrew Cameron grew up in the Hawke's Bay, New Zealand, and came to nursing after several years working at a range of jobs. When not working in a war-zone or post-conflict zone, he is the sole medical practitioner in Birdsville, Australia, on the edge of the Simpson Desert and home of the famous Birdsville Races. He is also the recipient of many awards: The Florence Nightingale Medal, Western Australia Nurse of the Year, Australian Nurse of the Year, the Order of Australia (for services to the nursing profession), Massey University's Distinguished Alumni Medal and La Trobe University's Distinguished Alumni Award.
'Cameron's drive to nurse people in need in often the most extreme and challenging environments is an inspiration to all nurses and humanity alike' - Lorraine Ritchie, Corpus
