My name is Marilena, and I’m a senior lecturer and personal tutor in adult nursing. I’m also a registered nurse specialised in orthopedic, trauma, and general surgical nursing.
Open Days and Taster Days
During Open Days and Taster Days, applicants will often ask me what resources they should familiarise themselves with before they start.
I personally am a huge fan of apps and websites, because they are often free and accessible even before the start of the course.
So, I collated my favourite digital resources below for you to explore at your own pace. These apps will also become useful during your degree to stay on top of revision and hone your knowledge.
I hope you will find them as useful as I and my students do!
