Nichola, a final year Adult Nursing student, reveals why she chose to come to Surrey.

“I came to Surrey because of its fabulous reputation and I’d heard good feedback from previous students. Everyone is friendly and the facilities are great - the Simulation Suite is just like being on a ward.
I’ve been on a variety of placements, including outpatients, orthopaedics, A&E, and district nursing. The variety of work and the opportunities you have on placement are great; no two days are the same which enables you to learn effectively. I particularly enjoyed my time working in A&E, where I felt part of the team straight away. I intend to apply for a job in A&E when I graduate.
For my elective placement I worked with the Red Cross support at home service. It was great to meet lovely people in their own homes, knowing I’d made a difference.
I’d advise future nursing students to enjoy every minute of the course and make the most of everything offered to you. I’ve achieved far more than I ever thought possible.”
