Made in Nottingham – three major awards for our student nurses

Student nurses from the University of Nottingham’s School of Health Sciences have won three major awards at this year’s Student Nursing Times Awards.

In a record year for entries, the School’s BME Student Network won the Mary Seacole Award for Outstanding Contribution to Diversity and Inclusion, and two Nottingham nursing students won in individual categories at the gala awards ceremony in London.

20-year old nursing student, Rachel Dakin from Bakewell in Derbyshire, won ‘Student Nurse of the Year: Children’, and the award for ‘Learner of the Year: Post-registration’ went to 26-year-old Phoebe Miles from Nottingham.     

The Student Nursing Times Awards are the ‘Oscars’ of the nurse-training sector and are hosted by the Nursing Times to celebrate the achievements of the student nursing community. The University of Nottingham has a long tradition of awards success in the recognition of its pioneering work in modern nurse education.
