Record nominations for Nottingham in Student Nursing Times Awards

Staff and students in the School of Health Sciences are celebrating the largest number of nominations they have ever received in the prestigious Student Nursing Times Awards.

The awards are the ‘Oscars’ of the nursing education world and recognise excellence in nursing and midwifery teaching and learning across the UK. The School has received 20 finalist nominations across 12 different categories – double the number of any other university. The list includes a record 12 students.

Dean and Head of School, Professor Joanne Lymn, said: ”I am so proud of the achievements of students and staff that are being recognised by these awards. I think this shows that the school really is a place which nurtures and develops excellence at all levels. The future of nursing and midwifery is alive and well.”

Among the nominees invited to the awards ceremony in London in April is lecturer in mental health, Dr Charley Baker. Dr Baker was shortlisted after being nominated by her students. Professor Lymn said: “Charley is an exceptional lecturer. She teaches some very sensitive and emotive areas of the curriculum which can be challenging for students but she does it with compassion and empathy. Charley is a huge asset to the School and has impacted positively on the experience of students, staff and the wider university.”
