Nurisng student Emily Howbridge nominated for the finals of a national contest which celebrates healthcare students and educators

Emily Howbridge, a third year BSc (Hons) in Nursing (Learning Disability) student, was recently short-listed in the Learning Disabilities Student Nurse of the Year category of the Student Nursing Times Awards. She was nominated by mentors in practice after producing information for a series of workshops for parents of children and young people who have a learning disability, enabling them to have a better understanding.  

Emily was interviewed by a panel of judges in London and although she did not win the top award she was delighted to have been short-listed for such a prestigious prize and attended the awards ceremony at London’s Park Lane Hilton on 28th April.

Emily felt that it was an amazing achievement to be nominated and short-listed to the final 10.

Great news for Kate Heaney

Huge congratulations to Kate Heaney, who following her recent nomination in the Student-led Teaching Awards was a winner on Friday night

The nomination came directly from a student representative on behalf of the cohort as a whole; in response to feedback from many students within the group. It is excellent to know that the students feel  so well supported by Kate and reflects really positively on the faculty.  This is a real platform from which to acknowledge and appreciate the hard work of Kate but also all professional service staff and the work then do ‘behind the scenes’
