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.

The current focus on acute hospital care in the wake of the Francis report may be robbing mental health services of their nurses.
This week I was in a meeting where people were discussing the importance of emphasising the breadth of nursing practice to both the profession and the public.
NHS England’s chief executive Simon Stevens’ comments last week about nurses and doctors needing to lose weight to be better role models hit a nerve and a chord with NHS staff - probably in equal measure.
