Joyce Smith and Melanie Rushton attended the RCN education conference in March. They presented a poster which highlighted findings from a study held with Nursing students from the Adult filed of practice on the Acute illness Management course (AIM). The Poster is now displayed on the second floor of Mary Seacole near the clinical skills labs. When you are next in take a look.

When I was given the opportunity to be one of the first student leaders for the @WeNurses Twitter account in January 2016, I did not anticipate the opportunities that would come my way as a result. During the year spent in the role, I’ve been able to make connections with qualified and student nurses around the country, I’ve attended the Cavell Trust awards, and most recently, I was able to attend the Houses of Parliament!
Congratulations to Prudence who published an article in the Nursing Times which focused on a holistic approach to care and the need to support the families of the patients we care for.
‘We talk about a holistic approach to care but often fail to provide comfort and support to the people that matter the most to patients; their families’

Good Luck from all staff and students.
The National Student Survey
Thanks to all those March 14 and September 14 students who have completed the NSS survey. Latest figures have shown that there are still quite a few students who have not completed this really important survey. Please can you do this as soon as possible as it provides us with invaluable feedback and reflects the course on which you are studying.
The National Student Survey (NSS) is an independent national survey which collects the opinions of final year undergraduates on the quality of their courses.
Please ensure that your uniforms are obtained from the official supplier (Alexandra). There have been some issues with other suppliers being used and the quality of the products and the detail finish are not in line with the uniform policy. The official supplier ensures us of the quality and standard.
