A group of aspiring nurses and midwives from Nottingham College shared their health knowledge and tips with staff and students through a range of stalls and activities as part of their Level 3 Access to HE Nursing and Midwifery course.
The students worked in small teams to research a healthcare-related area of interest, and they were tasked with producing their own resources, leaflets, posters, and surveys.
The special health promotion event was held at the College’s City Hub, where students organised a range of stalls and activities for staff and students to enjoy and engage with. Themes ranged from managing stress, mindset, and the use of collagen in skincare, to breast cancer awareness, mindful eating and sexual health awareness.
Psychology Lecturer and Nursing and Midwifery Course Leader, Athiyah Roomi, said:
The event was a great success and staff and students all participated and commented on how well organised the stands were and how much information was available.
Stands were full of useful facts, tips and information; they had interactive elements and lots of freebies too! It was fantastic to see students working well as a team, showing enthusiasm and resourcefulness.
I am very proud of what they achieved and I’m looking forward to our next event, which will be held at our Basford campus in a few weeks.- Athiyah
