A student nurse has had a tram named after her, after she was voted 2017 Nurse of the Year.

Christina O'Loughlin was one of eight nurses to win this year’s Nurse and Midwife of the Year Awards back in May, and went on to be named the overall winner after getting the most public votes.

Christina has been working at QMC in Nottingham this year and will graduate in December.

She said:

I am still overwhelmed that I was initially nominated for the award and then went on to be the overall winner.

I am so grateful that a family took the time to nominate me whilst their child was in hospital and that the public took the time to vote for me.

– Christina O'Loughlin

The Nurse and Midwife of the Year Awards are possible thanks to the partnership working between Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH), the Nottingham Post and Nottingham Express Transit (NET).
