Kingston University and St George's, University of London have been awarded three accolades at this year's national Student Nursing Times Awards.

The Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education, run jointly by Kingston and St George's, scooped up the awards for Most Inspirational Student Nurse of the Year, Nursing Associate Training Programme Provide of the year and Teaching Innovation of the Year at the prestigious annual awards.

The faculty's Healthcare Practice Foundation Degree (Nursing Associate), which saw the first cohort graduate in March, won the award for the Nursing Associate Training Programme Provider of the Year.

Course director of the programme Lucie Llewellyn said: "Winning this award was a fitting testament of the hard work and commitment of the programme team. It highlights the strength of the partnership between the University, trust partners and the students."

The third award collected by Kingston and St George's at the ceremony was Teaching Innovation of the Year. The prize was given to the faculty for the Nana-Xmas buddy-actor project, which saw Kingston's third year nursing students and associate professor Theresa Nash work with St Philip's Special School in Chessington and StoryAID.
