On Thursday 14th November, Year 12 student Mia attended a Nursing Careers event at Northampton General Hospital, as part of her exploration and preparation for a course of study, aimed at a career in Nursing.
The evening commenced with a presentation which provided an introduction to the career of nursing, detailing the pros and cons of life as a practising nurse. A tour of the hospital followed, with students visiting the pediatric and A & E wards among others. The event provided the opportunity to experience practical nursing skills, such as putting on scrubs correctly, making sure you remain as sterile as possible and practical experience of stitching wounds. Mia thoroughly enjoyed the evening, she told us, "I thoroughly enjoyed the evening, it was so interesting, and it gave me an amazing insight into nursing and midwifery."
Attending Careers events like this puts students in front of the experts, passionate about sharing their industry.
