The aim of this society is to create a safe, supportive and engaging place for student nurses to feel a sense of belongingness at university. We aim to hold social events that give students a haven from the often-stressful environment of placements and university.
We also hope to offer educational events that broaden and challenge knowledge, and work alongside programme leaders in the development of these- placement hours will be given for all educational events.
We organised the largest ‘course specific’ trip to Liverpool for RCN Congress 2019 and gave many the opportunity to experience what congress is about and how politics impacts nursing practice. In achieving all these aspects- social, wellbeing and educational events- we hope to empower student nurses to make changes in areas they are passionate about, gaining extra experiences and memories of their time at university.
Dan Gaughan- 3rd Year Mental Health Student Nurse
Hi everyone! Im Dan Gaughan and im the Chairperson of the Dmu Nursing Society!
I started Mental Health Nursing back in March as part of 1803 cohort and I am a mature student. I wanted to help set the society going again as I was previously President of the DMU Law Society back in 2005 (I know, I dont look old enough), and I know how great that was for meeting people on my course at socials, but just as importantly for more academic based stuff as well. But the most important thing is that we are running this society for you and all our future members, so we need your input to know the kinds of things you would like to get involved in!
Interesting fact: I was a wedding videographer before coming to uni, and got to meet Noel Edmonds at a wedding I filmed in Dubai! I have also been the chairman since the nursing society was launched.
