East Lancashire Hospitals Trust hosted a Nursing Insight day in celebration of the Year of the Nurse and Midwife. The event was a great success and an ideal opportunity to showcase the careers and also celebrate the hard work provided by our Nurses and Midwives!
During the event, we had representatives from a variety of nursing and midwifery roles, including Midwives, District Nurses, Mental Health, Theatres, Paediatrics and General Nurses. Each professional presented a session during the NHS Careers Nursing Insight Day offering careers advice, guidance, information on career pathways and interactive activities for a range of students.
The Work Based Education Team facilitated the event during which 46 students from all areas of East Lancashire had the opportunity to ask nurses and midwives questions about their roles and responsibilities.
Zoe Ashton, Practice Development Midwife at East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust, said: “All groups were very engaged and had a lot of questions! I was thrilled to be able to speak with the students and give them the advice they need for their future career!”
Julia Owen, Associate Director of Education, stated: “We are committed to providing high quality and engaging career opportunities to inspire our future workforce. 100% of students found the event to be useful, informative and would recommend it to a friend. We are very pleased with the outcome as the vast majority of the students said they would consider a career within East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust in the future. ”
Andrew Larkin, Careers Leader at Our Lady’s and Saint John’s Catholic School said: “Many thanks to the ELHT team who put on a very informative insight into nursing day for our pupils. Each workshop was delivered in a professional format with hands on activities and was well received by our pupils. Thank you"
