RCNi journalism scoops top media award
The Medical Journalists' Association has recognised journalist Jacqui Thornton for her features on healthcare in Africa
Journalism published in RCNi's Nursing Standard magazine has scooped a top media award.
Journalist Jacqui Thornton was recognised by the Medical Journalists' Association for pieces including articles on healthcare provided in Africa.
The two features, published within the past year, provide an insight into work done by nurses in often difficult circumstances.
The first piece looks at how nurses in Burkina Faso train volunteers to identify and prevent malaria, the second describes the childhood immunisation programmes delivered by nurses in remote villages.
