Student Nurses at our Brighton Centre
Blind Veteran's UK nursing department at our Brighton Centre regularly hosts first year nursing students from University of Brighton as part of their placement programme. We are an ideal setting for first year's as we have been consistently awarded excellent ratings from East Sussex PCT and the National Care Quality Commission and Gold Standards Framework for our quality in client care and clinical practice.
Students initially join the team shadowing trained nurses, then develop skills through supervised clinical practice. Work based learning focusses on areas from bedside and technical clinical skills, maintaining careplan documentation, to the management and administration of medications and team working. Below Celine Sprey and Alison Rapley share some thoughts about their recent placement.
