Dr Robert Bomont, the then University Secretary, was an influential part of positioning the University to take on the subject area of Nursing & Midwifery in 1996. This link was further strengthened when the University elected to name the Nursing and Midwifery Building on the Stirling Campus the R G Bomont Building. The continued association of Dr Bomont with the School, and his generosity, resulted in the creation of this annual award.
Clinical practice is a major and fundamental part of the studies of nursing students. The award is recognition of excellence in student performance, specifically in clinical practice.
It is to the winners' credit that not only do they demonstrate a high level of commitment and achievement in academic work but they also managed to do so in the more challenging environment of modern healthcare practice.
Many congratulations to Annemarie MacNeil who is the winner of the R G Bomont Award 2016.
Annemarie graduated from our Western Isles Campus in November 2016. She entered the nursing profession via the University's Pre-Nursing Scholarship scheme and during that year Annemarie decided nursing was the career for her. She applied for the BSc and studied at our Western Isles Campus in Stornway.
Dr Annetta Smith, Head of Health Sciences, Highland and Western Isles Campuses, commented "We are delighted for Annemarie. To have shown such commitment to nursing from a young age, and to be so highly rated by her clinical mentors and teaching staff, is an outstanding achievement. We wish her well as she takes up her first post in Oban."
