Ali-Rose Sisk, a nursing student at University College Cork, was presented with an award from UCC’s School of Nursing and Midwifery two weeks ago, Thursday, 27 April.
Ms Sisk, from Rostellan, was one of the seven students presented with awards at the second annual Catherine McAuley School of Nursing and Midwifery Student Awards ceremony. The Award for Outstanding Contribution to Sport was presented to Ms Sisk at the Brookfield Health Sciences Complex in UCC by Dr Aine Horgan.
Delighted with her achievement, Ms Sisk spoke of how her nomination and eventual success came about.
“There’s a board and you can be nominated by your colleagues,” said Ms Sisk, “which is basically anybody in the School of Nursing and Midwifery including lecturers. You are basically nominated anonymously and the board then selects. There were two lecturers who worked pretty closely with me for my four years in UCC. I had to travel a lot you see with the powerlifting and that, and they helped arrange my student placements around that.”
