Charlie - adult nursing student

Charlie found his place at UWS - Find yours!

Before joining UWS, Charlie was working in a care role with adults with profound and multiple learning disabilities. He then got a job with the NHS as a vaccinator, giving ‘flu and COVID vaccinations. It was at this time that Charlie decided he wanted to progress further and go and study nursing at UWS.

"I'm loving every minute. The support system at the University has been absolutely fantastic. Before UWS, I had quite low self-esteem, but the University has helped me build on my confidence, to the point where, at the RCN [Royal College of Nursing] Congress, I was able to stand up in front of hundreds, possibly thousands, of people to put my point across about student nurses in the cost of living crisis. It was such an amazing learning opportunity."

"The facilities at UWS are also absolutely fantastic. We use integrated technology to make sure patient safety is kept paramount. We use mannequins that can mimic human responses – for example, they can speak, blink, change breaths - really amazing technology. But if we get something wrong, it's about learning from it and reflecting on it and then going into practice and being that safe, all-rounded student nurse."
