Meet the 2021 winners

It has been an incredibly difficult 18 months for everyone involved in nurse education, with innovation on display all over the country to stand up to the challenge posed by the pandemic.

During a glittering afternoon ceremony, the winners of 21 award categories were recognised for their hard-work, innovation, and dedication to nursing education.


Editor of Nursing Times, Steve Ford, said:

“Congratulations to all our winners at the Student Nursing Times Awards 2021. The awards recognise a group of outstanding students on their journey to entering the nursing profession, as well as all those who support them along the way, including lecturers, universities and healthcare providers.

“Given the ongoing difficulties facing the education sector due to the pandemic, I was really impressed by the strength of entries that we received for the awards this year. Many featured learning innovations and outstanding students that reflect the challenges created by Covid-19, and that saw usual learning processes disrupted and nearly 30,000 students doing paid placements to help out on the front line.

“Our awards recognise students from all over the UK and at different stages of the nursing education journey, from first years to those who have recently qualified. Their innovation and achievements so early in their career already mark them out as sources of inspiration and rising stars for the future.

“Meanwhile, the many higher education institutions and placement providers represented on the shortlist demonstrate the constant evolution and development in the way the next generation of nurses are educated, equipping them to deal with the challenges they will face and to provide the best care possible.”

Congratulations to our winners, a huge well done to all finalists and thank you to those who joined us this afternoon.

We would like to say a special thank you to our judges and sponsors for their time and commitment to the awards.
