Big wins at Student Nursing Times Awards

April 28th, 2017

Our student nurses and staff are celebrating after scooping four awards at the prestigious Student Nursing Times Awards 2017 – almost a quarter of the total awards presented nationally.

The awards are seen as the ‘Oscars’ of the world of nurse and midwife education in the UK and this year the University’s School of Health Sciences won a record 20 nominations across the 18 different categories.

Claire Vinter was given the award for Student Midwife of the Year, Abigail Baxter won Student Nurse of the Year for Learning Disability, a teaching project ‘Peer-Led Clinical Skills’ won Teaching Innovation of the Year and the Pre-Registration Nursing Programme run by the School was the first ever winner of the new award for Student Experience.

Professor Joanne Lymn, Head of the School of Health Sciences, said:

“These awards, and the finalist nominations, are the icing on the cake for us, having this week also celebrated our jump to number 9 for nursing and midwifery in the UK in the new Complete University Guide 2018 league tables. I am absolutely delighted for the students who have had their passion and excellence recognised by these awards and would like to thank my staff for creating an environment which engages and empowers students so effectively.”

The School of Health Sciences at Nottingham achieves 100% graduate employment for nursing, midwifery and physiotherapy. 86% of its research was ranked as internationally excellent or world leading by the REF (Research Excellence Framework), with Times Higher Education ranking Nottingham joint 6th for research impact.
