This year the NMC was delighted to present Scholarships and Awards to our most talented practitioners for their work in progressing best practice and patient outcomes in the Nursing profession. These scholarships help to provide the recipients with the support necessary to achieve excellence in their individual fields, as well as being able to contribute to the greater good of the profession. This year the Scholarships and Awards were presented by Lt Col Laureen Grimes, Emily Malone and Sophie and Thomas Bullwinkel.
The NMC is particularly grateful to its benefactors, for without their support these Scholarships would not be possible.
