BU BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing student Harriet White has been awarded the Ede and Ravenscroft Academic Prize for Excellence in recognition of outstanding work.
The Ede & Ravenscroft Academic Prize for Excellence is an externally-sponsored award, awarded to second year students, which recognises educational excellence to help the student excel in their field.
Harriet received two commendations about her outstanding work in practice from the different teams she’d supported while on her clinical placements.
Harriet’s mentor on her first placement at Royal Bournemouth & Christchurch Hospital said: “She was one of the most outstanding students that we have had for a long time. She provided quality care for all of her patients whilst in recovery and theatres and is very keen to learn. She’s an exceptional role model and a credit to nursing.”
Lecturer in Adult Nursing Ian Donaldson, who awarded Harriet the prize, added: “As well as the commendation Harriet received from her practice placements, Harriet’s Academic Advisor said she showed a real determination to succeed and a highly positive attitude to what we all know all students face in the struggles to learn”.
Harriet said: “I’m still shocked to be awarded the prize, it’s amazing! It’s giving me more determination to believe in myself more.”
