1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
Providing nursing care to patients, while being able to diagnose and treat people independent of a medic.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have learned to examine people and come to a logical diagnosis. This aids treatment greatly.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoy the practical aspects of the course. Learning about the body, the way it works and why things go wrong. I have struggled with the less clinical aspects of the course.
4. How well organised/structured is your programme?
It is the first time mmu have offered this course so it feels a little unorganised, this has improved as we have progressed through the modules.
5. How much support do you receive from your employer?
There is little knowledge in my work place about what support is needed and this at times makes it challenging.
6. How much support do you receive from your training provider when working towards your qualifications?
I feel well supported by mmu in my degree
7. How well do you feel that your qualification (through your training provider) helps you to perform better in your role?
Without the course I would not be able to offer the level of care I am currently able to offer
8. Are there extra-curricular activities to get involved in at your work? (For example, any social activities, sports teams, or even professional networking events.)
Yes, there are health and well being activities arranged.
