The Cavell Nurses’ Trust Scholarship Awards 2015 take place this Wednesday 1st April. They are the UK’s first Awards dedicated solely to student nurses and midwives on undergraduate courses.
NHS Professionals is the proud sponsor of the Edith Cavell Leadership Award, which recognises leadership, talent and success and provides a unique opportunity to enhance the winners’ future in the profession.
The awards, now in its fourth year, are especially poignant as 2015 marks 100 years since the execution of Edith Cavell in German-occupied Belgium. Held at Fishmongers Hall in London, the event honours eight winners and eight finalists who shined through several hundred of their peers.
These awards commemorate Edith Cavell’s bravery, enthusiasm for education and her dedication to the profession. Applicants needed to demonstrate enthusiasm and interest in the ‘universal’ importance of nursing/midwifery and the value of sharing expertise across the wider community.
Good luck to all of the finalists and we look forward to finding out who has won on Wednesday evening.
