Critical Care nominated in Student Nursing Times Awards 2018

Critical Care has been nominated in two categories in the Student Nursing Times Awards 2018.

The department is shortlisted in the Student Placement of the Year category, and Partnership of the Year category - with our partner Anglia Ruskin University. 

The nomination for the Student Placement of the Year award recognises the commitment Critical Care demonstrates in supporting student nurse learning and the excellent feedback received from students on placement with the department. It recognises the innovative and novel approach the team take in delivering a unique learning experience for students that helps prepare them for their professional futures in the workforce. Importantly, the nomination recognises the high quality support clinical staff and mentors give to students.

The nomination for the Partnership of the Year award recognises the productive collaboration the department has established with ARU to deliver their in-house, postgraduate, Master’s level-accredited cardiothoracic critical care course. This course is a key element in the support framework to develop our future expert clinicians. The course also represents a first in cardiothoracic ICU education, assists experienced nurses new to Royal Papworth Hospital to develop expertise in this area, and helps newly qualified nurses bridge the gap from student to professional life.

Robert Gannon, Education Charge Nurse in the Critical Care department, said: “Not only do the nominations recognise the commitment of the Critical Care department to continuous professional development, and the development of the future workforce, they also recognise our collaborative efforts with local health education providers and Trust-wide clinical education who support our many innovative initiative."
