Student nurses get their turn on TV
ITV has commissioned a new series called “Nurses To Be”, which will follow the lives of student nurses.
The TV production company Twofour has announced that it has been commissioned to produce the new documentary for ITV.
The company said the series would feature a range of students at different stages in their training to give an “authentic insight” into their lives and the “pressures, emotions and challenges they face, both in the classroom and on the wards”.
Melanie Leach, Twofour’s managing director, said: “Britain’s nurses are today’s frontline heroes and becoming one takes a special kind of character.
“In following their preparation for their days on the wards we are guaranteed a fascinating journey told with honesty, humour and compassion.”
It is the latest documentary series to focus on the nursing profession, but the first to look specifically at students.
It follows Channel 4’s “Confessions of a Nurse” and Channel 5’s “Nurses”, which is currently being broadcast on Wednesday’s and documents the lives of nurses at Cardiff and Vale University Trust.
