Uni pair listed in nursing awards.

A TEESSIDE University lecturer and a student have both been listed for top honours in national nursing awards.

It is the second year running that Teesside University has had someone shortlisted in the Student Nursing Times Awards.

Rachel Morris, senior lecturer in the university's school of health and social care, and Amanda Bain, a third year BSc (Hons) nursing studies student, are hoping to follow the success of last year's two Teesside University winners in the same two categories.

Rachel is nominated as lecturer of the year and Amanda as adult student of the year.

Teesside was the only university to win two awards at the inaugural awards held last year.

At that ceremony, senior lecturer Mark Wheatley was named lecturer of the year and Beccy Phillips was chosen as adult student nurse of the year.

This year's Student Nursing Times Awards will be announced at a ceremony in London on Wednesday, May 1. Rachel said: "It's a real honour and a very humbling experience to be nominated."

Amanda said: "It feels amazing to be nominated.

"It was completely unexpected and I'm overwhelmed."

Teesside University has also been shortlisted for two further accolades.

They are the Partnership of the Year award, for its work with NHS trusts and providers, and the Teaching Innovation of the Year award.
