We are absolutely delighted to announce that our Nursing student, David Ferran, has won the Student Nurse of the Year Award at The Royal College of Nursing's Northern Ireland Nurse of the Year Awards! 

David is an Open University nursing student in Stage 3 of his honours degree course specialising in Adult Nursing. He is based in the Dermatology Outpatients Department of the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast, where he has worked as a Health Care Assistant for five years. He is an exceptional role model for his fellow students both clinically and academically and is developing the qualities of an excellent nurse. These awards provide the opportunity to highlight excellence within nursing and celebrate the contribution that nurses and health care assistants make to the health and well-being of the people of Northern Ireland. Many congratulations David!
