Swansea University’s College of Human and Health Sciences has been shortlisted in the 2016 Return to Practice Course of the Year category in this year’s Student Nursing Times Awards, it was announced today (Monday 7 March 2016). ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The College were named winners of the Return to Practice Course of the Year category in 2015, and this year will see their 200th student return to the profession. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Return to Practice course prepares nurses to return to their field of nursing care in today’s dynamic and challenging clinical areas. The course is approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and enables nurses whose registration has lapsed to return to practice. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Student Nursing Times Awards celebrate the very best in nurse education, recognise and reward excellent educational establishments and honour those who are committed to developing new nursing talent. The awards also pay tribute to students who have demonstrated the academic achievement, clinical prowess and personal qualities that will make them brilliant nurses. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

‘Better than ever’ ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Keith Bradley-Adams, Senior Lecturer in Mental Health Nursing at Swansea University, said: “We are delighted at being shortlisted again this year for a Student Nursing Times Award in recognition of the quality of our Return to Practice course. As holders of the award we are very keen to retain our title but have not been resting on our laurels for the past 12 months. The course continues to evolve and improve, ensuring that nurses returning to practice are fully equipped for the realities of contemporary nursing practice. We believe our course is better than ever this year, and hope the improvements we continue to make will help us to be successful again this year.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The winners of this year’s awards will be announced on Thursday, 28 April, at the London Hilton on Park Lane, where over 650 nurse education professionals, student nurses and nurse leaders will gather to reward the students and establishments shaping the future of nursing. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
