student nursing times awards open for entries
Calling all students, mentors and educators, we have now launched the 2019 Student Nursing Times Awards.
Whether you’re a student or newly qualified, a mentor who goes the extra mile or a university that puts student experience first, we have 20 fantastic categories designed to showcase excellent performance. You can either nominate yourself to set your accomplishments apart from your peers, or an individual or organisation who you feel deserves recognition.
Those who are shortlisted will be invited to attend our awards ceremony next spring. Taking place on Friday 26 April 2019 in a glittering afternoon ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane, London, the Student Nursing Times Awards will bring together the nursing community to shine a light on the brightest talent making their way into the profession.
Highlighting excellence in all specialities of student nursing, the awards also provide the opportunity to congratulate the lecturers, mentors, universities, trusts and private organisations going above and beyond to support student nurses on their journey.
Among our 2018 winners was Travis Norton, from the University of Birmingham, who was year’s Student Nurse of the Year in the adult category. Our judges were impressed by the “mature and professional approach” that Mr Norton had to nursing, particularly in relation to inter-professional development. They described him as “an exceptional role model to fellow student nurses”.
The Student Midwife of the Year, who was named as Laura Thomas from Bangor University, was also earmarked by judges as “clearly a future leader for midwifery”. In addition, Patricia Stringfellow, from Birmingham City University, won in the children’s nursing category; Joe Atkinson, from York University, came out top in the mental health category; and Anna Johnson, from Nottingham University, for learning disability nursing.
Meanwhile, the Educator of the Year was announced as Jennie Young, from the University of Stirling, and the Mentor of the Year was Liz Maby, from Princess Alexandra Hospital Trust.
Winning one of our student awards is not just a great moment in time to be proud of, it can help boost your future career and is something to flag on your CV as you move through the profession.
The Student Nursing Times Awards are now open for entries. What are you waiting for? Enter the only awards celebrating student nurses and nurse education. Entry deadline is Friday 14 December 2018.
