The Nursing department at the University of Bolton have been nominated for two awards at the forthcoming 2017 Student Nursing Times Awards.

Now in their sixth year, the prestigious Student Nursing Times Awards are the only awards to celebrate the very best in student nurses and nurse education.

Afreen Asam has been shortlisted for the Most Inspirational Student of the Year Award while the University and Central Manchester Foundation Trust are nominated for Partnership of the Year.

The winners will be announced at the ceremony which takes place at the London Hilton on Park Lane on Thursday 27 April.

The evening will once again pay tribute to the students who have demonstrated the academic achievement, clinical prowess and personal qualities that will make them brilliant nurses. They will also be recognising and rewarding outstanding educational establishments and honouring those who are committed to developing new nursing talent as mentors, lecturers and providers of placements.

‘Afreen was nominated for the award as she has not only progressed well within the programme, but she has excelled in her academic work,’ said her lecturer Julie Chapman.

‘Her practice and has gone above and beyond requirements despite a change in her personal circumstances. She is a lovely and highly motivated student who will make the most fantastic, compassionate nurse.’

Afreen, who is a second year Adult Nursing student said: ‘I am very humbled to have even been nominated, let alone being short-listed for the final of the Student Nursing Times Award.’
