Student Ambassador

My name is Hollie, and I am studying Child Nursing in Chelmsford. I share my time between university and placement, and I’ve experienced a lot!

In my first year I lived on campus and was Course Rep (I still am!) which was a great experience and recommend it to everyone.

My placements have been eye opening and I have learned so much this past year and a half.

When I’m not on placement or at university, you’ll usually find me in a coffee shop somewhere with my laptop or in the university library.

I am also a part of the Child Nursing Society’s Leaders council (Social Media holder) and enjoy spending time with my fellow colleagues on trips and at conferences. I recommend that you join ;)

One of the best choices I’ve made is working through the Employment Bureau as a Student Ambassador. I'd recommend it to those on busy courses as it allows you to choose your shifts to suit you.
