University of Northampton staff and students were out in force today at one of the University’s key health partners to help celebrate nursing.
Although tomorrow is the official International Nurses Day, there have been events throughout the week. As part of the global activities, Kettering General Hospital hosted a day where nurses and student nurses spoke about their achievements over the past year.
Staff members from the University of Northampton’s Adult and Child nursing courses joined them to talk about their academic and professional progress and talking about what University of Northampton has to offer students.
After an introduction from KGH’s new Chief Executive Simon Weldon, the hospital officially launched its new Nursing and Midwifery Framework of Excellence.
University of Northampton’s students were among those talking about their nursing journey over the past 12 months.
Cindy O’Dell, Subject Lead for Adult Nursing at University of Northampton, was one of the staff members in attendance: “International Nursing Day is all about celebrating the uniqueness of nursing and promoting the privilege, science, compassion and support nurses give and receive from their relationship with patients and their families.
“We were more than happy to take part in KGH’s part in the world-wide celebrations as their support of our students and the learning experiences they offer them throughout Kettering are hugely beneficial to future nurses.”
