As well as the SNTA’s, The Faculty of Health are also celebrating Adult Nursing student, John Wells who has been selected to represent Nursing and Midwifery students at the National Academy of Social Prescribing.
John Wells was up against stiff competition for the £2,000 Nursing and Midwifery Coordinator Social Prescribing Studentship and panelists commented that it was John’s ‘bottoms up approach, involving the community, as well as his desire to grow the team, and engage with the rest of the members of the Social Prescribing Champion Scheme,’ which landed him the role.
John Wells said: “I am so honored to have received this position, it has never been open to student nurses previously, only student medics, and I plan to work collaboratively with all fellow students to show the rest of the UK, how amazing the students here at LJMU are.”
LJMU Subject Lead for Nursing in the School of Nursing and Allied Health, Lorraine Shaw, said: “We are enormously proud of all our students within the School of Nursing and Allied Health who continue to go above and beyond, and the award nominations and studentship are further evidence of the amazing work they are doing.”
