Testimonial from 'So you want to be a Nurse?' event 2016
"On Friday 26th February a selection of students from years 11, 12 and 13 attended the Wolverhampton University Walsall Campus to find out what it would be like to study nursing. During the day we took part in different activities in three of the four different types of nursing.
Overall, we all agree that the trip was a great opportunity to enhance the experiences we already gain in Health and Social care lessons. We are looking forward to a planned trip to the skills rooms and developing our UCAS applications with the universities help and support.
We would like to thank the student nurses for giving us the time and patience to ask them lots of questions and providing us with real life experiences of nursing careers."

Statement from University of Wolverhampton Nursing graduate, Susan (currently a newly qualified Band 5 children’s nurse)
"Originally I wanted to be an art student but when I worked as a health care worker for vulnerable adults and children I realised I simply wanted to help people. I was in care from the age of 9 and always knew I wanted to be more than a number. When I provided care for people that needed it the most, it made me feel like I could make a difference. When I started the nursing course at Wolverhampton University it was everything that I thought it would be. It made me develop not only as a professional, but as a person. The course made me develop skills and gain a variety of knowledge that I feel has a set a foundation for my future development. I am currently a Staff Nurse on the level 3 neonatal unit looking after babies with a wide variety of needs. I have also started a foundation course to further my knowledge in caring for neonates. I loved every moment at university, even the stress at times. Wolverhampton has taught me everything I need to establish myself in nursing."
