Jordan Hogan and Olivia Perry

Nursing is an incredibly rewarding career path that requires patience, selflessness, and an ability to support those in need. Whilst the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) require students to undertake 2300 hours of practice-based work in community and in-patient care settings across the island, all taught sessions are based at the Keyll Darree campus.

The campus allows Higher Education Mental Health and Adult Health students to learn in a realistic working environment and gain valuable hands-on experience.

Here, at the Keyll Darree campus, Jordan Hogan and Olivia Perry share their experiences of studying nursing at UCM.

Jordan studied BN (Hons) Mental Health and Olivia studied Health & Social Care, then BN (Hons) Adult Health. See here for more information about these courses: BN (Hons) Adult Nursing, Health & Social Care
