Christmas prize gave winner a head start in her studies

  • Comment

As we announce the winner of the Nursing Times Christmas Competition for 2017, we caught up with last year’s winner – first-year student and mum of three Chloe Petit, who won a free one-year subscription to Nursing Times.

Chloe said in her entry that she needed to have “relevant and up-to-date information” at her fingertips, which is why she entered the competition.

“Being able to access this readily would help me develop my knowledge, provide me with key articles that would help provide a foundation on which to build up on in future assignments and would give me the necessary insight into the pertinent issues that face nurses and the NHS today,” she said.

The year’s subscription included unlimited online access to Nursing Times, with around 6,000 double-blind peer reviewed clinical articles, online learning units on fundamental aspects of nursing care, a personal e-portfolio as well as daily, breaking and specialist email newsletters.

Chloe said: “It was great having free access to Nursing Times during the last year because it meant I was able to keep up to date with the current issues that are affecting our nurses in the NHS, such as the pay cap and issues with the retention of nurses.

“What I found particularly helpful was reading articles that resonated with my own experiences as a student, such as the recent article on student placements and whether problems that arose on the ward posed a threat to the student’s learning. Also, as we are doing our acute care module this year, it’s been brilliant to be able to read the clinical articles.

”She added: “I do think it is a great resource and once my studies are over, I will look forward to being able to subscribe to it, hiding somewhere quiet in my house and having a good old read.” 

As a student, Chloe is able to subscribe to everything Nursing Times has to offer, but with a 30% discount. Click here to find out more about our subscription offers.
