Year 10 Nursing Taster Day

On 8th May, Year 10 Health and Social students were invited to have a tour of the new nursing facilities at Leeds Trinity University. The students enjoyed a tour and listened to current students talk about University life. They explored the simulation rooms in the new nursing building and had an interactive session on how to look after patients. The students worked in teams to change a bed with a model patient in it. They then explored the other parts of the campus, including the library and onsite student accommodation. The lecturers were both experienced nurses and gave the students an insight about life as a nurse and the different types of nursing. The students will now be able to understand the routes into nursing and be able to discuss this in their coursework.
