Judging chair urges nurses to complete their entries

Chair of this year’s judging panel Joanne Bosanquet said the past 18 months had been full of incredible challenges but nurses had risen to them.

'We know that 1,000 nurses, nursing support workers or nursing students have something to share with us because they have started their entries. We are urging you to complete them,’ said Ms Bosanquet, who is chief executive of the Foundation of Nursing Studies.

‘We want to tell the world about nursing excellence, so please finish your entries by 24 May.’

The RCN Nurse of the Year 2021 will be chosen from the category winners and announced at the awards ceremony in October.
