Announcing our Nursing Times student editors for 2023-24

Our Nursing Times student editors have been appointed for 2023-24 and have already started writing about their experiences and views exclusively for you.

As ever, the standard of applications was really high and the selection decisions tough, but we have finally settled on eight student editors from all the entries that were submitted.

Thank you so much to all that applied this time and please try again in future, even if you did not get chosen this time.

Among the chosen eight are four adult nursing students, one each from children’s nursing, learning disabilities nursing and midwifery, plus one covering both adult and mental health nursing.

In alphabetical order, they are Carly Davis, Chioma Eucharia Nnajidema, Chioma Vivian Ezunu, Devansh Chiralayath Njalil Baburaj, Ellie Sims, Jess Pidcock, Lucy Allen and Richard Denton.

Over the coming months, look out for their regular blogs – one of which will be published each week in our dedicated student section. The first one, by Lucy, has just been published.

Like every year, expect their thoughts on policies affecting education, descriptions of what it is like being a student at different stages of study and in various parts of the country, including placements.

In addition, our third years in the group will almost certainly be looking ahead to joining the register and their preceptorship year.

You can engage with their views by following them on social media sites, especially X (Twitter), or through responding to their articles in the comment box at the bottom of the page.

You may also get to meet them at next year’s Student Nursing Times Awards or see them sooner at one of our virtual Nursing Times Careers Live events, taking part in the student reception.

Plus, don’t forget that this time next year we will be once again looking for a fresh group of students to become editors, so please think about applying. You can prepare by looking at our guidelines on applying.

Meanwhile, we very much welcome opinion pieces from students who are not among our group of student editors too, so please feel free to get writing and submit them to us anytime you like.

Also, while we’ve got your attention, the 2024 Student Nursing Times Awards are open for entries, so check out our 24 categories and find yours. The deadline for entries is 15 December 2023.
