Nottingham student shortlisted for Student Midwife of the Year award


Cara Evans, a School of Health Sciences midwifery student has been nominated for the Pregnacare® Award for Student Midwife of the Year.

This award seeks to recognise an individual student midwife who makes an outstanding contribution to their future profession and/or the experience of other student midwives through their activism, initiative and leadership. This may be through their contribution to an innovative project, to a university midwifery society or to the Royal College of Midwives

The judges are looking for an individual who:

  • Demonstrates vision and leadership potential
  • Contributes to the improvement of the student experience while studying midwifery
  • Acts as an advocate and role model for fellow students
  • Contributes extra time and effort to midwifery through commitment to The Royal College of Midwives or the development of a Midwifery Society.

Gill Walton, Chief Executive of the Royal College of Midwives, said: “The standard of entries has been extremely high so to get this far is an outstanding achievement. It shows how much innovation is going on in our maternity services, and how hard midwives, maternity support workers and the wider maternity team are working to deliver the safest and best possible care. I wish everyone the best of luck at the awards ceremony in March next year.”

Susanne Bisinotto, Marketing Manager for Pregnacare said: “We are proud to sponsor the Student Midwife of the Year award, which recognises and celebrates the dedication, initiative and leadership demonstrated by student midwives. As ever, the calibre of the entries is very high, making the shortlisting and final judging process a rewarding challenge in its own right.”
