Diane, Adult Nursing studentDiane, Adult Nursing student

As part of my course I have undertaken two placements at St Helier Hospital and a placement at Kingston Hospital. At present I am on placement at the hospice and I will be at the eye clinic next.

I chose Kingston because my course is part of a linked Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education with St George's Medical School and therefore we are awarded our degree from the University of London.
