Access to Nursing students get into character for their 'Life Through Their Eyes' stall
Access to Nursing students get into character for their 'Life Through Their Eyes' stall

Access to nursing students shared their health knowledge and tips with the public recently through a range of stalls and activities, as part of their Level 3 Access to Nursing course.

The group of 15 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.

Stu­dents then organ­ised a range of stalls and activ­i­ties for staff, stu­dents and mem­bers of the pub­lic to enjoy — from yoga and inter­ac­tive apps, to food sam­pling, infor­ma­tion about holis­tic ther­a­pies and well­be­ing, as well as the chance to sam­ple a vari­ety of healthy food alternatives.

Also, in an attempt to demon­strate some of the dif­fi­cul­ties expe­ri­enced by the elder­ly, stu­dents came up with an inter­est­ing stall all about young peo­ples’ per­cep­tions of grow­ing old, called Life Through Their Eyes’, and they came up with a fun activ­i­ty; where peo­ple could have a go at mak­ing a cup of tea whilst wear­ing thick wool­ly gloves and gog­gles — which proved quite tricky!

Our stu­dents braved the cold weath­er and organ­ised a real­ly fan­tas­tic event. They worked well togeth­er and came up with some real­ly good ideas and activ­i­ties for the public. 

It was also an excel­lent oppor­tu­ni­ty for our stu­dents to inter­act with stu­dents from oth­er edu­ca­tion­al pro­grammes. I am very proud of what they achieved. It was nice to see how cre­ative, resource­ful and moti­vat­ed our Access to Nurs­ing stu­dents can be. 

We have more Health Pro­mo­tion events by oth­er groups of Nurs­ing stu­dents com­ing up soon, so please pop by to say hel­lo and take part in our activities.
