We are so proud to recognise their contributions to the NHS and wider society.’
The BJN Awards were followed by a week of interviews from all of the winners where they discussed their award-winning work andshared their experiences in order toinspire others to introduce changes to their own practice. Each day also featured important educational updates on a variety of specialist topics to keep nurses up-to-date
with the latest developments
in their field.
‘This year has been a particularly hard year for nursing, but it also has highlighted what an incredible, resilient and committed profession nursing is,’ added Ms Gardner.
‘This year’s BJN awards have seen examples of incredible work that has not only been innovative but has pushed boundaries at a time when services and people have been stretched to the limit. We would like to take this opportunity to not only thank the winners, but to thank every single nurse for their hard work and dedication throughout the pandemic.’
