ECU School of Nursing and Midwifery

“Hands on Training Program”



Year 11 Students Nhu Nguyen, Himani Shah, Vanshree Panchal, Twara Patel and Hannah Ebrahimiyan recently participated in the week-long ECU School of Nursing and Midwifery “Hands on Training Program”.  

This “Hands on Training” course provided participants with a structured program promoting the diversity of a nursing career.  Evidence based practice was used to develop this program, including the use of specific teaching aids such as full human patient simulators and scenario based training, the benefits of which allows students to be exposed to authentic nursing situations as well as offering a safe environment for students to practice their newly acquired skills.

Structured activities took place in lecture theatres, the anatomy laboratory and demonstration wards at the ECU Joondalup Campus.  During these activities, students learnt from a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate lecturers and participating hospital nursing staff in a supportive environment, providing them with access to a number of different nursing experiences and areas of expertise.  Practical workshops provided students with the opportunity to learn about a number of principles important to nursing.

ECU Senior School Officer, Julie McDonald, commended our students on their maturity and their eagerness to learn and said we should be very proud of our students.

Well done.
