The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) has been crowned a winner at the Student Nursing Times Awards 2018.

UCLan’s Faculty of Health and Wellbeing won the Student Experience category in recognition of its inspirational teaching staff and high-quality resources, plus its focus on academic achievement and hands-on clinical and people skills.

Professor Nigel Harrison, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing at UCLan, said, “I am proud of the Faculty’s staff who work hard to provide the truly exceptional student experience that we have been recognised for.

“We are a huge provider of nursing education in the north west and have excellent links with health professionals in the NHS as well as a high level of student employment. This is a great reward for the staff who work tirelessly to deliver such outstanding teaching.”
