Mentors acknowledged with awards

  • Comment

Nurses and midwives who mentor students from the University of Worcester have been thanked during an awards ceremony.

The University’s Mentor Awards evening saw 11 awards handed out to recognise the outstanding contribution to the student practice learning experience by those professionals acting as mentors.

Robert Dudley, Head of Pre-Registration Nursing at the University, said: “Mentors are the key to successful practice learning for many students, particularly if the clinical placement is their first taste of nursing/ midwifery in practice.

“We wanted to recognise and celebrate the nurses and midwives who make an outstanding contribution to the student practice learning experience by building successful mentoring relationships with students from the University of Worcester and beyond.”

He added: “The Mentor Awards Steering Committee found the task of selecting the winners a demanding one as it was clear that all the nominations demonstrated excellence in mentorship.”

The event took place at Worcester Warriors Rugby Club and the opening address was given by Professor Tamar Thompson OBE, a governor at the University and Lead Nurse for the National NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement.
