Updated: Sep 1, 2021


Health and Community Services (HCS) has been shortlisted for a Student Nursing Times Award for the student nurse experience in Jersey.

The Higher Education department in HCS are finalists in the Best Student Experience category for 2021.

The national awards recognise excellence in all fields of nursing and celebrate organisations that go the extra mile to support pre-registration nursing students.

Senior Lecturer and Pre-Registration Programme Leader, Dr Hazel McWhinnie, said: "We are absolutely delighted to be recognised for our dedication and passion for the nursing profession. Being shortlisted as a finalist is testament to the hard work of every student, every practice learning partner across the island and the senior lecturers that work to provide a student nursing experience like no other."

Chief Nurse, Rose Naylor, said: "The Pre-registration Nursing and Midwifery training programmes are so important to us as an Island community, not only do they provide an opportunity for Islanders to study and become part of a fantastic profession but they also provide Jersey with a steady supply of registered professionals who will join our workforce.

"The calibre of the programmes, the relationship with our university partners, the quality of the senior lecturers, and the support of our committed mentors in practice, all contribute to the success of the programme. I am so very proud of the team and it's really well deserved to see them recognised in this way."
