University wins at the Student Nursing Times Awards

Last week, the University won two awards at the 2017 Student Nursing Times Awards.

The University’s Department of Nursing was awarded the ‘Partnership of the Year’ award for their work with with Stockport Council and Stockport Foundation Trust and Liz Spencer, a post registration student on the School Nursing programme, was named ‘Learner of the Year: Post-registration’.

The awards are an opportunity to support the whole student nursing profession and to celebrate the achievements of the student nurses shaping the future of the profession. There were 720 talented student nurses, education providers, and mentors in the room, 174 finalists on the shortlist and 18 deserving winners at the award ceremony on Friday 28 April at  the London Hilton.

Jacqui Gladwin, Principal Lecturer, said: “It was another brilliant day and a privilege to spend time with some really inspiring students and the other winners. We are already planning our entries for next year and hope for continued success and achievement.”

This is the third year the Department have celebrated as winners and the fifth year that they have been finalists.

The University’s Department of Nursing also judged and sponsored the best adult student category, which was won by a student from Stirling University.

The Student Nursing Times Awards celebrates the very best in nurse education, recognises and rewards brilliant educational establishments and honours those who are committed to developing new nursing talent as mentors, lecturers and providers of placements. The awards also pay tribute to students who have demonstrated the academic achievement, clinical prowess and personal qualities that will make them brilliant nurses.
