Student shortlisted for an award by the Student Nursing Times magazine

Posted on 12 April 2018

Third year mental health student nominated for Student Nurse of the Year award

Third year mental health student Joe Atkinson is among 12 finalists in the category of Student Nurse of the Year: Mental Health, which was open to all final year mental health nursing students across the UK.

This award celebrates the skills mental health student nurses need to develop to nurse this often hard-to-reach and excluded group. The judges will be looking for an outstanding final-student who offers excellent care and support to this group in treating or helping them to manage their mental health problems.

Joe said: "I am very happy to be nominated. It feels great to be recognised for the things I have achieved over the last three years, although I believe that every student in my cohort of mental health students is capable of winning this award and hope that this nomination represents what we have all achieved as student nurses".

The winner will be announced in April at an event in London hosted by the Student Nursing Times. More details can be found at
