What will the day involve? 

This interactive day will give your hands-on practical experience, where you'll practice your skills in our state-of-the-art Immersion Simulation centre. Get stuck in on our mini simulation ward for child and adult nursing and get involved with an interactive session for mental health. You’ll also practice and understand the basics of observations and bedside care for patients.


There will also be a mini taster lecture, an interview preparation session and information about the financial support available to you while you're study with us.

Throughout the day there our current students and academic team will be on hand to answer any questions you might have. We will have information stands for our support services including disability support and uniforms. 

All you need to do is bring yourself, we’ll provide refreshments and lunch.
