Sam (President) was our first student to be awarded Student of the Month. As a society we felt that Sam deserved it this month due to the sheer commitment she has had with starting up the Society. There is a lot of behind the scenes work that goes on to run a society and a lot of time needed which Sam has devoted. Here (with permission) is Sam receiving her special gift (which the committee members themselves paid for) Well done Sam 🙂 xx
This months student of the month goes to Charlotte Jameson. Charlotte was nominated by Mary Conyers. The reason for this nomination is quite a sad one. Unfortunately Charlotte, Mary and other student nurses lost a much loved member of the 2018 cohort this year, Abby.
Mary explained ‘Charlotte and Abby were very close friends and I know that Charlotte is heartbroken that she has left us. Charlotte has put together some amazing gifts for Abby’s children as well that I know the cohort are grateful for. Charlotte is always a message away if anyone needs anything and I have sent her many!! Advice on placements, uni or just general well-being. She is a lovely girl and will make an amazing mental health nurse in a years time xxx.’
Although this has been a rough time for Charlotte, she has still gone above and beyond to help others which we felt as a society, deserved to be recognised.
The committee would like to offer our deepest condolences to the 2018 cohort and all affected by the loss of Abby.
This Months student of the month was awarded to Hollie Hunter. Hollie was nominated by her peers due to her willingness to help others when they found themselves struggling, even though she also had a heavy workload too. This shows kindness and compassion, and we are pleased to be awarding Hollie with student of the month. Well done.
Student of the Month has been awarded to Ellie Ramsay. Ellie was nominated by her friend for helping out her peers. Ellie had created some wonderful revision guides for an A and P exam coming up after the new year, and after a rough few months, she selflessly offered them to her peers, which no doubt saved a lot of people valuable time over the Christmas holidays. This act of kindness is what nursing is about, helping each other out. Well done and congratulations!
Kicking off the start of the new year, Laura our very own Social Media Officer, has been awarded Student of the Month. The reason for this is, not only is Laura currently trying to complete her final year (dissertation, exams and placements) but she has also been a huge support for her peers. This being the first, second and third year student nurses, as well as still being very much involved within the society too. We felt that Laura deserved the recognition and to also say that we all appreciate her so much and are grateful for everything she does for us all. Well done Laura!
Student of the month for February has been awarded to Beth Allanson. Beth was nominated by another student who said that ‘Beth always has time for others, will always go out of her way to ensure we have the support we need, and is overall a lovely person’ We as the society agree and are happy to award Beth with student of the month. Well done Beth!.
Our Student of the Month for March is Courtney Lamb.
Courtney received Student of the Month because it was felt she has been an incredible support to students in her cohort, excelling in her role as a Course Rep and supporting students with studying for exams and assessments. Well done, Courtney! Giving support to others is exactly what we’re about here at the society and what nursing is all about, too! You’re doing amazingly!
Our April Student of the Month is Gemma Oldroyd.
Gemma was nominated because, “she has to work so hard through the struggles of hybrid placement, building a new society focussing on bringing an empowered feminist community together despite personal struggles and continually puts others before herself, doing everything with a smile”. Well deserved, indeed! What amazing members we have!
Our May Student of the Month is Bobbie-Jo Smirk
Bobbie was nominated because, “Bobbie is in her 3rd year and when on our most recent placement I needed to swap my night shifts to days due to issues at home, Bobbie without even hesitating or asking what nights I was down for said she would swap with me. She really supported me in others ways through a hard time and I feel she should be recognised for this as many people would not be willing to swap day shifts for night shifts”
Students looking out for each other is amazing to see, well done Bobbie-Jo well deserved!
