There was much applause at the recent BJN Awards, which took place beneath Shakespeare's Globe in London, as we celebrated excellence in nursing. On Friday 25 March, we honoured members of our profession and the exceptional contributions that they make to nursing practice.

There were over 200 guests attending this prestigious annual event, after 2 years of virtual celebrations. Over the course of the evening, 18 awards were presented to nurses, addressing issues around continence, excelling in intravenous therapy, providing extraordinary nutritional support and enhancing patient care in urology. Awards were also given to those nurses who have contributed in the fields of chronic oedema, gastrointestinal nursing, hepatology, infection prevention and control and mental health. Nurses practising in oncology, renal care, stoma care and wound care were recognised for putting patient care at the heart of their role. BJN award winners are inspirational and encourage other nurses and colleagues as they strive to ensure that the patient is at the centre, taking nursing to a whole new level, practising at the top end of their licence.
