Jemma Pickering

Meet Jemma Pickering one of our 2nd year students, who has now completed five placements within our Trust on the Bradford School of Nursing programme (run in conjunction with ourselves).

Jemma has been asked to keep in contact by two of the placement area's for job openings upon completion of her course.

Jemma has some advice for anyone thinking about a career in nursing and joining the Nursing programme;

“To anyone wanting to become a nurse I would definitely recommend this Nursing Degree programme, its close by for placements and the School of Nursing at Dewsbury is a smaller cohort to the University so much friendlier with a family feel . The only thing I would advise anyone who is re-entering education like myself is going on an access course before joining the programme. It has helped me grasp the theory and concepts of the course so much. I would also say don’t be afraid to ask for support from the tutors, mentors and staff nurses – they are all so helpful and supportive here, I love it!”.
