UHP Honorary Senior Research Nurse, Archana Shajidevadas, shortlisted for Nurse of the Year


We are delighted to share that Honorary Senior Research Nurse, Archana Shajidevadas, has been shortlisted for the Nurse of the Year award as part of The British Journal of Nursing Awards. This is for her outstanding work in contributing to the nursing profession through clinical care, research and academia over the last 22 years.

Archana’s lead position in the pioneering Nursing Associate programme at University Hospitals Plymouth (funded by Health Education England) is one of her many accomplishments. This project saw students receive support in the form of education and pastoral care, which in turn directly supports the safe care of patients and alleviates nursing staff shortages. Archana also monitored and assessed this pilot programme and fed these results back to HEE to improve the programme nationally.
