Transition Year Programme
There is a yearly programme which we run here in the clinical skills centre for Transition Year students. This programme is incorporated into the School of Nursing & Midwifery Transition Year programme. An application form needs to be completed and availability is limited.
As part of this one week programme, all students will attend the Clinical Skills Centre for 2 days.
The various clinical skills sessions which are facilitated over the two days for the transition year student includes:
- CPR- Family First session
- Hand Hygiene & Infection Control
- Moving & Handling exercises
Short presentations from the clinical nurse tutors on:
- Midwifery skills
- Children's nursing skills
- General nursing skills
- Mental Health skills
- Intellectual Disability nursing skills
This programme will give an opportunity to the student to look around the clinical skills area and see the clinical skills equipment. It also allows the student to ask lots of questions on nursing as a career choice with experienced clinical nurse tutors.
We look forward to welcoming you to the clinical skills centre!
