"These awards demonstrate how much qualified nurses supporting those training to be nurses and student nurses are achieving. Every year we hear about fantastic new talent entering the profession, as well as excellent educators and mentors in universities and clinical placements. This event shows the nursing profession is in very safe hands because there is passion and expertise emerging in the next generation of nurses. And the people and organisations shaping those nurses evidently offer tremendous inspiration and practical support. I am incredibly proud of all our finalists and winners. Congratulations to them all."
