'Bye for now and thanks Student Nursing Times!'

  • Comments (7)

When I first asked Nursing Times about writing a few articles I had no idea that I was lucky enough to approach them just as they were creating Student Nursing Times.

They asked if I could act as the ‘student nurse editor’ and write a weekly blog.

I’m proud of my achievements and am honoured that some of you found my writing interesting but I also want to say thank you.

I want to thank the staff at Student Nursing Times, in particular Editor Jenni Middleton and Online Editor Nadine Woogara for giving me the opportunity to bare my soul every week. I’m also thankful for being able to attend the Nursing Times Awards and help out in the Student Nursing Times Awards judging.

But of all these things, I have been most lucky to engage with student nurses. Coming onto the site each week and going through your comments and trying to respond has been a particular joy of mine.

But what about me? I will still visit to read all your great articles but more than that I’ll still be producing the Student Nursing Times Podcast. Do you want to get involved with it? If you’re interested in joining in please contact me on twitter @AdamRoxby.

Thank you to everyone for reading and good luck to the next student nurse editor of Student Nursing Times who will be revealed next week!

  • I think I read all of your articles over the last few months, applying to nursing as a mature student. Thank you very much for all your work, it was inspiring and informative and definitely helped convince me press the dreaded 'send to UCAS' button! Lots of luck for your future career and I will keep up with your journey on twitter.

    So time has come when I get to respond to the comments for the last time as student nurse editor.

    As I have said, this has been one of the highlights for me over the last year.

    Kate - congratulations on becoming a blogger. It is a great experience and I'm looking forward to reading your articles. Just how close are you? You know that makes your perfect candidate to get involved on the pod cast!

    Anonymous – thank you for your kind words. the greatest compliment is to hear that you learnt something from my articles. while I may not have a weekly article here any more I will still be around so be sure to follow me on twitter to find out what I'm doing.

    Rachel – I never get used to the fact that so many people read what I write. When you do get in touch with me on twitter let me know how you're getting on with your training.

    Thank you for your comments. As I said in the article, I will still be involved with the student nursing times because I will still be making the pod cast. Coincidentally, if you're interested in finding out more about the show then I would encourage you all to visit my personal site over at or tweet me for more information.

  • Good luck in your career Adam! And I'm sure your days of writing for the Nursing Times are not over - I expect to see articles by you in other parts of the Nursing Times very soon!
    I have enjoyed reading your articles and I wish you all the best in whatever else you now do.

    Good work Adam. Thanks for the articles. While it is true that I did not actally learn much about clinical practice (could this be because I am at the other extreme from being a student nurse - a rapidly ageing old hand I wonder? :) ) I found it very heartening to know that nursing is still attracting the right calibre of caring want-to-know what best practice is kind of individual you exemplify Adam.

    Best of luck in your endeavours ahead and best wishes to the new correspondent taking over your mantle.

    Adam wishing you all the very best for your ongoing odyssey into nursing. As in life, the learning never ends. Keep smiling, 'you can't give kindness away, it always comes back'.
