The deadline for entering the prestigious RCNi Nurse Awards 2019 has been extended until February 15th.
The awards, the profession’s top accolades, offer nurses, students and healthcare assistants a chance to share their innovations and expertise while celebrating their contribution to making patient care better and improving outcomes.
Managers can show how much they appreciate individual nurses and teams by nominating them.
Entries are open to individuals and teams in 20 categories covering the diversity of nursing.
The Patient’s Choice category, which gives patients an opportunity to nominate a nurse or healthcare assistant who has made a difference to their lives, will be decided by a public vote.
Yvonne Coghill CBE, NHS England’s director of workforce race equality standard will chair the judging panel and said, “We know nurses are incredibly busy and we wanted to give them more time to share their excellent practice with us, and in turn the rest of the profession. We look forward to reading about the difference nurses are making to patients all over the UK.”
