Here are some photos of the soon to qualify September 14 nursing cohort, interestingly captured in the soon to be demolished Foss lecture theatre on the University of Hull campus. As one part of our university's history ends, another begins, with our nurses making their own history, as they embark on exciting new posts and adventures.
Over the past three years I have had the pleasure of being involved with many of these students, across all fields, and have seen first-hand their commitment and motivation to complete the course.
The degree programme is demanding; clinical work can be difficult and emotionally draining - as can be the academic pressures too! The past three years have flown by, and in that time these students have grown into confident and competent professionals, capable and caring nurses, ready to begin their careers. It will be strange not seeing these familiar faces around campus, but yet I am equally incredibly proud of what these students have become, they will become the faces that patients and clients will become familiar with rather than us, and that is exactly how it should be.
