The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) in Preston has been shortlisted for four prizes in this year's Student Nursing Times Awards.

UCLan has been named in a shortlist for the Nurse Education Provider of the Year award and in the Student Experience category for the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing. In addition, midwifery student Alison Brindle has been shortlisted in both the Student Innovation in Practice and Student Midwife of the Year categories.

Professor Nigel Harrison, the Executive Dean of the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing at UClan, said: "The University is delighted to be shortlisted in four categories of the Student Nursing Times Awards."

"UCLan is recognised as a major provider of nursing, midwifery and allied health programmes and our reputation for providing an exceptional student experience, allied to established links with the health professions and high levels of graduate employment, continue to make UCLan a popular choice. We look forward to the awards ceremony in April."

The awards ceremony has been running since 2014 and celebrates the best of the student nursing community. The event is sponsored by UCLan along with other institutions and universities.
