Adult Nursing Taster Day

Our Adult Nursing taster session will give you the chance to experience what being a nurse is really like.

Clinical Skills

Adult Nursing: Preparing a Patient for a Procedure

This Adult Nursing taster session will take place at our Clinical Skills Centre at Sam Fox House, Northern General Hospital, which includes mock clinical wards, resuscitation suites, simulated theatres and teaching rooms.

We'll begin with a short theory session, to prepare you before the practical activities begin. Once you're ready, we will be taking a patient's Vital Signs Observations including pulse, temperature, oxygen saturations, blood pressure and respiratory rate, while documenting these details.

You'll then have the chance to apply a pair of TED stockings and insert a naso-gastric tube, using the manikins.

We'll then debrief and evaluate the clinical procedures and finish the session with a Q&A with academic staff and current students. 

Please note that you should wear flat shoes to attend this taster day.
