RCN Wales Nurse of the Year 2022
The Royal College of Nursing Wales will be celebrating its 10th RCN Wales Nurse of the Year Awards in City Hall, Cardiff on Wednesday 9 November 2022.
The awards continue to recognise innovation and excellence in practice, acknowledging the outstanding efforts, commitment and achievements made by the whole of the nursing community across Wales.
Nominated nurses, midwives, nursing students and health care support workers must demonstrate a passion for their profession and exemplify distinction in care, leadership, service and innovation. Individuals can be nominated for an award by peers, teams, managers, patients and the public. Diversity in nominees is encouraged to reflect the workforce in Wales across all areas of nursing; Independent Health and Social Care Sector, Third Sector, NHS, or Local Authority.
Nominations for the 2022 awards are now closed. Congratulations to all those that have been nominated for an award this year. The shortlisting process is currently underway, in order to determine which nominees will be successfully invited to attend the interview stage of the process. The following dates have been agreed for each award category interview – these interviews will be held in-person at our RCN Wales Headquarters in Cardiff.
