SWAN Champions in the School of Nursing and Midwifery (SoNM) at QUB, in collaboration with Schools of Nursing in Ulster University and the Open University, created the above video to promote EDI and gender equality. This recruitment video seeks to address the shortfall of men applying to nursing programmes in Northern Ireland and features current students talking about why Nursing is a profession for all.
'Make a Difference with Nursing’ is a resource intended for post-primary school pupils which can be used during careers lessons to better inform students about the profession. The resource seeks to dispel some of the myths around nursing and change pupils’ perceptions. It features current staff and students talking about their passion for the profession and includes facts and figures and discussion points.
