Nursing Times announce the shortlisting’s for the Rising Star Award 2013


NHS Professionals are proud co-sponsors of the Rising Star award, along with The Florence Nightingale Foundation and 6 C’s Live!

A bit about the award
Some nurses stand out from the moment they enter the profession. They are natural leaders whose motivation is to constantly improve the quality of their own practice and the services they work in. Their caring natures ensure they will not only offer compassionate care themselves, but will demand it of those around them and raise concerns if it falls short. They have the capacity to develop essential nursing skills quickly, and the creativity to innovate and reshape services. Nurses like these will be a positive influence on the profession throughout their careers.

What the judges are looking for
This award aims to recognise a nurse who has been qualified for less than five years, and demonstrates exceptional qualities that embody the best of nursing and the leadership skills to inspire others to follow their example.

Jayne Parker from Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust

Lynsey Brown  from Calderstones Partnership NHS Foundation Trust,

Emily Winter  from Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice
