Adult Nursing student shortlisted for two Student Nursing Times Awards

Katy Sutherland has been shortlisted for the Student Innovation in Practice and Student Nurse of the Year: Adult awards.


Katy Sutherland, a final year Postgraduate Diploma Adult Nursing student in the Faculty, has been shortlisted for two Student Nursing Times Awards, for Student Innovation in Practice, and Student Nurse of the Year: Adult. The awards recognise the cream of the crop amongst the student nursing community, and have been running for the past four years.

I couldn't quite believe it when I saw not one, but two emails saying that I had been shortlisted for the Student Nursing Times Awards. It's an incredible feeling to have been recognised in such prestigious categories.

Anne Pegram from the Faculty’s Adult Nursing Department said:

‘It is fantastic news that one of our Postgraduate Diploma students has been short listed for The Nursing Times awards. Katy has designed a resource for student nurses centred around end of life care.  It is a great achievement for Katy to be short listed for this award.’
