Critical Care finalists at the Student Nursing Times Awards 2018

Critical Care was strongly represented at the Student Nursing Times Awards 2018 yesterday at the London Hilton on Park Lane hotel, where they were highly commended in their categories - Student Placement of the Year, and Partnership of the Year awards with partner university Anglia Ruskin University (ARU).

Robert Gannon and Siobhan Moore from the Critical Care Teaching Team, who led each award respectively, said: “The nominations represent the fruits of our close working relationship with our partner university ARU, our student nurses and, most importantly, our clinical mentors and staff who support learning and professional development.

“One of the initiatives presented included a management placement experience for student nurses who would soon enter employment on our unit.

“Another initiative that was presented was our post registration partnership with ARU. The partnership is an innovative Masters level Cardiothoracic ICU course that represents our preceptorship programme for newly qualified nurses.

"It is currently the only cardiothoracic ICU programme in the UK where experienced nurse recruits can develop expertise in this speciality of care.“
