At Nursing Times we are huge fans of student nurses. We launched studentnursingtimes.net to create an online community to help support them and we followed this up with the Student Nursing Times Awards to showcase excellent students and honour the people helping them become the next generation of nursing professionals.
Now, we’d like to offer all student nurses a free gift that will support their studies - an online learning unit that would normally cost them £12.
So if you’re mentoring a student or have students on placement, or if you’re a university lecturer, then give them the gift of learning.
Full details of the offer are below, but all you need to do is tell them to go to www.studentnursingtimes.net/learningoffer to find out how to claim their unit, and we’ll do the rest.
There’s a range of over 40 units to choose from - but some of the most popular for students are Drug calculations in practice, Clinical record-keeping, and Learning and studying efficiently.
So let Christmas come early for your students and give them something they really will find useful.
Finally, a big thank you to all the trusts who signed up to the Nursing Times Speak Out Safely campaign last week. Through our tweeting, emailing and web updates, we managed to ensure trusts put this important issue front of mind and made an explicit public pledge to encourage and support their staff to raise concerns.
As we go to press a total of 26 trusts and six clinical commissioning groups have signed up - congratulations to them for helping to create a safer NHS. But we want EVERY trust to sign up. So if your trust or organisation is not listed here www.nursingtimes.net/sos, then download the letter on the site, and send it to your chief executive. We want everyone to be able to Speak Out Safely, and we won’t rest until they can.
