The annual Student Nursing Times Awards honour the best of the next generation of nurses, shining a spotlight on all disciplines of student nursing. They also provide an opportunity to congratulate the lecturers, practice supervisors, universities, trusts, and private organisations which support student nurses during their studies.

Joseph, 25, from Middlesbrough, who combines his studies with a part-time role as health care assistant in the neuro theatres at James Cook University Hospital, said: “It feels surreal to have won my category at the awards.

“I am so grateful to South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Teesside University for their support and encouragement.”

Mark Wheatley, Senior Lecturer in Nursing Skills at Teesside University, said: “This was a fantastic event and I’m delighted that the Nursing Associate Training Programme has been recognised.
