You’ll get to meet a variety of nurses and hear their stories and advice, including how they have developed their career, the impact Covid-19 has had on them and their role, and what they love (and hate) about being a nurse.

At the end of the week you will have developed skills and an understanding of this exciting career.

You will need to have internet and computer access for the duration of the week. Somewhere quiet to work from 10am – 3pm, Monday to Wednesday. Lunch and breaks will be taken during the day.
