Faculty of Health and Wellbeing (HWB)
Department of Nursing and Midwifery
Within the Nursing and Midwifery department, Gary Souter established support groups for students. This included a Mature students group, a BAME students group and a Men in Nursing Together (MINT) group. Ifrah Salih took over the BAME student support group and actively recruited students for the group. This group aimed to provide students with an opportunity to talk about issues they’ve had on placement or around campus so that the department is able to gain more of an awareness of what is going on. Initial evaluation highlighted that the same students come each week and that these students are mostly postgraduate or mature students. As a result, the department is now looking at ways to grow the group and make it more appealing to all students. With that in mind, an Open Day is planned to try and recruit more students.
