  The Bruce Turner Award 2019

 CLOSED ON 19 AUGUST 

BAUN Annual Conference 2018 showcased the inaugural Bruce Turner Award and will return again in 2019

Bruce Turner was a well known and loved BAUN member, a nurse consultant at the Homerton Hospital, London, and BAUN Education lead for many years.

Our beloved friend and colleague passed away in 2016 after a terminal diagnosis of cancer. He was determined to continue his mission to educate and impassion urological nurses and left instructions that a legacy should continue in his name.

His legacy has been used to establish The Bruce Turner Award: an annual prize which will provide a fully funded place (transport within the UK, accommodation and conference fees) to the BAUN annual conference.

If you feel that you could benefit from this opportunity, please complete the application form by clicking the link below.

If you are a nursing manager or work with junior staff, please encourage them to apply, as this is an outstanding opportunity for urology nurses to benefit from mentorship and exposure to national urological expertise and practice. Even though we strongly encourage junior urology nurses to apply, all applications will be considered.

Closing date for receipt of completed nominations was Monday 19th August 2019

Please note: This deadline is before the Nurse of the Year and Team of the Year Awards.
