Nurse Manager of the Year
Effective line management is critical to supporting individual and organisational health and performance. Line managers often have the biggest impact on staff health and wellbeing and fostering teams that feel valued as part of the organisation. This award aims to recognise an exceptional nurse team leader working in the NHS or independent sector who demonstrates commitment to nurturing and supporting their staff.
Any nurse, working in the community or in an acute environment who is leading a team of any size is eligible to apply. We welcome entries from candidates themselves or nominations from those who wish to highlight a line manager who they believe merits this recognition.
