What's it like to be a Student Nursing Times editor - child branch?

  • Comment

Chloe Alden-Dennis undertook the role of student nurse editor for child branch from September 2014-15


My role as student editor for child branch has been both a privilege and a pleasure!

I was so surprised to receive the phone call to ask if I would like to blog for the Student Nursing Times, I didn’t quite believe it. The Health Sciences department at my university were excited to have one of their students sharing experiences of nurse training with other students from all over the country.

I must admit, at times I wondered where I would find the time with caring for a family, being on placement and studying but writing the blogs each month turned out to be a wonderful outlet and writing for other students about the ups and downs of the journey to registration was a valuable experience that I highly recommend.

There is lots more to the student editor job than writing.

I was involved in judging competitions, leading Twitter chats and adding photos to the SNT Instagram page.

The highlight was attending the Student Nursing Times Awards in London, an opportunity to put your glad rags on, sup champagne and rub shoulders with some of the UK’s most inspirational nurses and future nurses. This was also a chance to meet with the student editors from the other branches who were all lovely!

Apply to be the next child branch student editor and inspire future cohorts of nursing students as they navigate their way through training. It will also look fabulous on your CV!
