NMBI Team Attend University Nursing Event in Derry
NMBI Director of Education, Policy and Standards, Carolyn Donohoe and Professional Officer, Lorraine Clarke Bishop were guests at a one-day event at the Magee Campus of Ulster University in Derry last month.
The ‘Community Resilience Exercise Day’ was organised by Owen Barr, Professor of Nursing and Intellectual Disabilities at the Magee Campus.
The experience was designed to challenge the leadership and management skills of 3rd year student nurses as they were provided with simulated scenarios based on actual or potential experiences. The scenarios were devised by various interdisciplinary groups such as the British Red Cross as well as ambulance, fire, police and rescue services.
Ms Clarke Bishop described the day as “an amazing collaboration” that aims to support the nursing graduates of the future. She added: “We were both delighted to be involved and were welcomed by all staff and students.”
The Magee campus has been running the events since 2010 and adapted the programme in 2018 to include responses to flooding events after widespread floods in the North West in 2017.
