For nursing student Sabrina Ffrench, winning a scholarship at the Cavell Nurses’ Trust awards in June came as a bolt from the blue.

‘I’d forgotten I’d entered,’ admits Ms Ffrench, who has just completed her degree in adult nursing at Wolverhampton University and is waiting to start her first job in surgical nursing.

‘I didn’t expect to win at all. When they called my name it was a shock,’ she says.

The scholarship scheme recognises and celebrates nursing and midwifery students from across the UK. Awards include outstanding academic achievement, outstanding student midwife and nursing student, and leadership.
