The QNIS seeks to inspire the next generation of community nurses. In offering prizes to every university in Scotland we hope to encourage community nursing’s rising stars!
Each university is asked to nominate outstanding students who will “promote excellence in community nursing”. Each winner, in both undergraduate and postgraduate categories, is given a certificate and a small cash prize to celebrate their achievement.
Prize winners are also given the opportunity to attend our annual conference as our guest, where they can continue their learning and experience in community nursing. All are offered the opportunity to write a blog on their experiences, and their hopes for the future, to be featured on the QNIS website.
We are proud of all our prize winners who exemplify high quality community nursing scholarship and practice.
