    Oooo what speciality?!

    Ok guys i need ideas!

    We're thinking of putting on a 'surviving as a student nurse' night for jan freshers

    Put yourself as a first year again- what sort of things would you want to know?
    Ideas we have:
    - a survival kit, aka hand cream, pumoce stone for feet, black pens, stress ball, lanyard etc
    - old book sale from 3rd years & qualifieds
    - q&a session about bursary
    - budgeting workshop
    - bodyshop table & reflexology taster session
    - talk from midwives
    - cooking demonstration on budget food etc
    - childcare & nursery stands
    - student map of nottingham

    Any other ideas?!

    Why the talk from the midwives? Nice idea, just generally wondering :p:

    I think expands the Q&A session from bursary to covering other things.. from what i remember we were all far more concerned about asking questions about the course - travel arrangements / placements / essays etc..

    I think a bloomin lecture on the importance of USING the handcream might be a good thing to add too :p: state of my hands at the minute from all the handwashing in A&E, i think i need a trip to occy health for some strong stuff!

    Exam- horrible, horrible, horrible. Not holding out much there, but neither is anybody else for that matter.
    Presentation on the other hand went pretty well. My lectures said my content was good and i presented it well

    It has sub-specialisms in colorectal and trauma, and all reports of the ward are fantastic so happy enough.

    The idea of a survival night is fantastic!! Infact, I would be tempted to copy... haha.
    I like the idea of midwives, but I think first year, maybe a talk from a Link Lecturer/ Practise Educator on what is expected of them on placement? xx

    Obviously something on placement may be good-BUT they dont go out till march, and im aware that during their induction week they'll have an awful lot of info being thrown at them. Im thinking making it a light evening and promiting the fun, extea curricular and social side of being a student nurse

    Sorry for the intrusion, so I've just heard about extended nurse prescribers - google says 'within their competence' - is that access to the whole BNF??

    Hellooo, I've not been in here for a while! How is everyone?

    I got my assignment results back! Got 95%, 61% and 58% - passed them all yey
    I've not long finished my last placement. Start my final 1st year placement this week which is 9weeks long on a diabetic ward, can't say i'm looking forward waking up at 5am to get there for 7.30am though and I have to do 3 weeks of nights which should be good!

    Also, in uni we received info about our elective placements for second yearr! I reaaally want to go abroad I already have money saved up but it's just organising it is going to be tricky!

    Ditto.
    Ive got the ball rolling but it can be a hefty process. A couple of girls here are going Oz, seems to be tricky and costing them a small fortune.
    You have anywhere in mind?

    Got last weeks exam result back today, 64%. Not amazing but its a pass, was only a mock and i can book my ideas up now.
