Jenni Middleton joined Nursing Times in 2010, and now leads the magazine, the award-winning website, all events, including The Nursing Times Awards, Student Nursing Times Awards – and the Patient Safety and Care Awards, which is run jointly with sister title Health Service Journal.
Since joining the title, Jenni has launched studentnursingtimes.net, an online subscription package for student nurses, and the Student Nursing Times Awards. She was also part of the team that organised the chief nursing officer for England's summit last year.
Nursing Times also runs its own suite of online learning units for nurses to include as part of their CPD called Nursing Times Learning.
While Jenni has been editor of the title, Nursing Times has won three Online Media Awards, one British Media Award, a PPA New Talent Award and two British Society of Magazine Editors' Awards – one of which was for Jenni personally.
Campaigning to improve the recognition and rights of nurses is part of Nursing Times's heritage, and this has continued under Jenni's editorship as the magazine has run the successful A Seat on the Board campaign to win places for nurses on clinical commissioning boards and is currently running the Speak Out Safely campaign to ensure that all healthcare organisations listen to their staff when they raise genuine patient safety concerns.
Jenni has worked in journalism for nearly 20 years on a range of titles in manufacturing, engineering, science and retail before joining Nursing Times.

After months (that feel like years) of politicians’ promises, pundit-produced pie charts, newspaper editorials and heated television debates, this week the nation goes to the polls to decide who should govern the UK.
The recent changes at Public Health England and the Department of Health could be an opportunity for nursing to strengthen its voice.
As the election gets closer, all the political parties have worked out that offering the prospect of an improved NHS will be a vote winner.
It’s shocking enough that a nurse who was working at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford was convicted last month of 27 counts of rape, sexual assault and voyeurism.
Media coverage of the general election has moved up a gear in the past week or so.
It’s just over five weeks to go until the nation heads to the polling booths on 7 May. And that decision is likely to be heavily influenced by the parties’ plans for the NHS.
The 6Cs – the words selected by Jane Cummings, the chief nursing officer for England, to articulate nurses’ values in response to a spate of care scandals – seem to divide the profession as much as unified it.
The Shape of Caring Review brought 34 recommendations for the training and education of nurses - both pre- and post-registration - and most of them havebeen welcomed by the profession.
