At my university, the first year for all nursing branches, paramedics and ODPs is called a common foundation programme. It provided us with the fundamental skills needed for working in healthcare and introduced us to anatomy and physiology, psychology, sociology and healthcare law.
I am in the camp that swears by it. My first ever networking event was the Positive Choices Conference - an annual, free two-day event for all learning disabilities (LD) nursing students. Since that one event my student nursing opportunities have exploded.
