Nursing Times’ Jenni Middleton named ‘editor of year’


Jenni Middleton, editor of the Nursing Times, has been recognised for her achievements over the last 12 months by her peers.

She was last night crowned “editor of the year” by the Medical Journalists’ Association at their annual summer awards.

A panel of judges said she had “demonstrated an impressive record in… providing lively, thought-provoking, and relevant content for the readership”.

Meanwhile, reporter Shaun Linter, who contributes to Nursing Times on workforce issues, was a runner-up in the category for staff writer for a specialist audience.

Ms Middleton said: “It’s a real honour to win this award. My team have made huge changes to the Nursing Times offer in the past few years – digital first with news, campaigning journalism that uses social media to maximise impact and a quality learning product that is supporting the CPD of nurses – which will become ever more important as we head towards revalidation.

“All those things have culminated in the success of the brand this year,” she said. “It is an honour to work with this team and produce content for a profession that makes a difference to the people they take care of. This really is an amazing job.”

  • I knew Jenni was a shining star and now she has been crowned "Editor of the Year" to prove it. By saying "the Year" I think they mean last year, this year, next year and every year! Jenni is the best! Congratulations and well done, definitely well deserved. With that crown the Queen will be recognising next.

  • I remember all the negative comments you had when you first took up the post, so a very, very well deserved achievement!

  • I am new to Nursing Times and I wished I had found it earlier,the depth and breadth of discusions is amazing.Thank you Jenni Middleton for the opportunity of having a voice to promote Nursing in the Care Home Sector, a much maligned and undervalued Group of Nurses who have for years gone about with their unglamorous jobs , just relying on the feedback of the thousands of satisfied clients (which we never hear about) to motivate them.
