Kent nurse wins top learner award

  • Comment
A nurse from Kent has been awarded the South East Region Adult Learners Award from the Learning Skills Council for outstanding achievement in her field of study.

Formerly an auxiliary nurse, Ms Hogan completed her nursing diploma at Canterbury Christ Church University and now works as a district nurse on the clinical decisions unit at the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford.

‘I am surprised and delighted to win this award,’ she said. ‘I am a single parent and found my course at the university hard work, but ultimately, I absolutely loved it. Learning gives you confidence within yourself and a way to a better quality of life for yourself and your family.’

Ms Hogan was nominated by her tutor Martin Bailey, senior lecturer in clinical sciences and nursing studies at the university. ‘This is a fantastic achievement from an outstanding student,’ he said.

She accepted the award from Sky News sports presenter Jacqui Beltrao.
