On the Tuesday 7th November, Orla Mathews came into school to speak to the nursing group about a nurse’s role, different nursing specialties, recent trends in hospitals, and the dreaded interview. She used really innovative ice breakers to get the group to think carefully about their motivations for nursing and what aspirations they have for a nursing career. Orla shared stories from her own career, which were fascinating and her presentation was very informative and extremely helpful for our pupils.

Orla has many achievements such as RCN Nurse of the Year ‘Student of the Year’ award, RCN Nurse of Year ‘Leader of the Year’ award, as well as a Nursing Times Rising Star Award and a Foundation Of Nursing Studies Patients First Award.
