Plymouth Marjon University is proud to announce that Senior Lecturer Hannah Ames has been nominated for the University Educator of the Year award at the Student Nursing Times Awards 2023.
The Student Nursing Times Awards bring together the nursing community to celebrate the brightest talent in the profession and recognise those making nursing innovative, patient-focused, and inclusive.
The awards recognise those who have gone above and beyond what is expected of them in their day-to-day role.
Hannah, who joined Marjon in 2022, has been a university educator for several years and has previously been nominated for the Teaching Innovation of the Year award for her nursing classes on Twitter during the initial COVID-19 lockdowns. She is now nominated for the University Educator of the Year award for her exceptional work in nursing education.
“Nursing is a really complex profession. We’re highly educated, intelligent professionals working in high-pressure roles, making multiple complex decisions every day,” said Hannah.
“To be able to place my love of healthcare and passion for the sector into the education of the next generation of nurses is really exciting, and I’m pleased to have the opportunity to do this at Marjon alongside their new simulation suites and first-class facilities.”
Hannah joins Marjon as the University unveils 12 new health programmes, including nursing, healthcare science, and audiology, as well as higher level and degree apprenticeships.
The Student Nursing Times Awards recognise individuals and teams who stand out as truly exceptional in 23 categories covering a wide range of nursing specialities from mental health to social care to children’s services.
Professor Saul Bloxham, Dean of the School of Health and Wellbeing at Marjon commented: “Hannah's nomination for this prestigious national nursing award is a fantastic achievement. We are proud that Hannah and the new staff team at Marjon are leading educators in nursing education for the South West of England and we look forward to celebrating more of their innovative and dynamic student-centred teaching.”
The Student Nursing Times Awards ceremony will take place on Friday 28 April in London.
