Judging process

The Nursing Times Awards has the most prestigious and rigorous judging process of any nursing awards in the profession. Each category has its own independent panel of judges, made up of leaders from the nursing and wider healthcare sector alongside a number of past award winners, who review entries to determine the shortlist and conduct live presentations, to select the winners for that category.  

Each stage is designed to provide a fair and transparent process. Please note if you are chosen as a finalist by our judges you will need to present to our judging panel. The final dates per category will be published soon.

Stage 1: Online Judging – once the entry phase closes, the judges will review online and score each submission to determine the shortlist.

Stage 2: Live Presentations – once the shortlist is announced, all finalists will be invited to give a presentation to our judging panel. This will take place from Monday 12 to Tuesday 20 September 2022 at our central London office:
