A student nurse takes a trip to RCN Congress

  • Comment

I’ve heard so much about it, some students from UCLan went last year and said it was truly inspiring.  There are sixteen of us from university going, some of us are Congress virgins and others have been before.

My other half is convinced I am really going on a booze cruise as I excitedly waffle on to him about all the parties that are going on in the evenings.  I did try and convince him that it was part of the job description of being a student - it was mandatory to attend Congress - he didn’t believe me.

Of course I am excited about the parties.  Being a mum has meant the opportunity to go to a party have been few and far between since the kids were born.  A hangover just isn’t worth it when the kids get up at 6:30am.  So I am rather looking forward to going out, not having a curfew, being able to drink as many lemonade and limes as I want and not being woken up at 6:30am by a small child pulling the covers of me, climbing on top of me and shouting “BREAKFAST PLEASE MUMMY”

The parties are just a small added bonus to the exhilaration of actually being able to say “I am going to Congress!”.  I am really looking forward to it, I hope to come away inspired, proud of my profession and even more in love with my career choice than I already am.  I am hoping to meet lots of inspiration people, nurses and other students.

So if you see me there, come and say “hello”, I’d love to meet you!
