University of Northampton’s 2015 intake of nurses marked finishing their studies with the traditional celebration, marking the end of undergraduate life and saying farewell to colleagues…and their former academic home, Park Campus.
The Celebration Day was held at The Platform, the base for the University of Northampton Student’s Union in town.
The agenda for the day included motivational speeches, information about revalidation, the ‘professional MOT’ nurses undergo after registering with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and, of course, awards for those students who have excelled themselves throughout their courses.
Dr Steve O’Brien, Dean of the Faculty of Health and Society and a former nurse himself, closed the day: “It’s important to remember that as they qualify, our nurses are working with people who are vulnerable and who need them. They are in an extremely privileged position.
“My advice to them all is to go out and continue their excellent work, being brilliant and delivering the great care they are now trained to give.”
