Nursing students shortlisted for award

Our Nursing team are proud to announce that two of our students, Charlotte Gilligan and Irfan Jina, have been shortlisted for the Nursing Times Student Nurse of the Year award. 

The awards seek to recognise the achievements of the next generation of nurses, and to showcase the dedication they have shown over such a difficult period.

Adult Nursing student Charlotte is an all-round achiever, who exemplifies the core values expected of a student nurse and qualified professional. She is a strong advocate for both her colleagues and her patients who receives wonderful placement feedback that shows her positive attitude towards her own learning, and her empathy and compassion towards patients. She volunteers with a local vaccination centre, and also recently volunteered her time to present at a School.

Ifran, also an Adult Nursing student, applies himself to both his academic work and placement in a way which shows his full commitment to Prioritising People, Practising Effectively, Preserving Safety and Promoting Professionalism and Trust. He shows real insight into his own strengths and areas for growth and development. He uses this to put the patient at the heart of everything he does.

Head of Nursing, Dr James Woodall said ‘This is a fabulous accolade and testament to Charlotte and Irfan, and the academic team supporting them.’

The award winners will be announced on Thursday 4 November, at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
