Student awards

The Ted Adams Trust is committed to advancing nursing and midwifery education in the Guildford area.

The Ted Adams Trust makes awards to promote and recognise clinical excellence for final year undergraduate students in Nursing and Midwifery Studies at the University of Surrey in Guildford. Students are selected for their consistently outstanding performance in practice. Potential winners are identified from their Practice Assessment Document and assessed on key aspects of performance that exemplify clinical excellence. Awards are determined by a panel chaired by a Professor of Nursing.

The ten adult field students and the five child, mental health and midwifery students who have received the highest marks in their year three Practice Assessment Document will be considered for the prizes. The winners will be identified from the qualitative comments made by their mentors in their Practice Assessment Document.

The Ted Adams Trust also makes awards to mentors of Nursing and Midwifery students. The students nominate mentors whom they have considered to have been outstanding in their role. The awards are of a monetary nature and are decided by a panel. Nomination forms are available from the School of Health Sciences.

The awards will be announced on the students' final day and presented at the University's Annual award ceremony. Could this be you?
