Quote from Ruth;
Winning the RCN Student Nurse of the year award has shown me that I am a children and young peoples (CYP) nurse through and through and it is my call. I am excited about starting my nursing career and making a difference within CYP healthcare. I have been privileged and blessed to have had such great education, support and training from the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Queens University Belfast. This has provided me with an ideal foundation to develop my clinical expertise and knowledge further.
