Teesside University nursing and midwifery students rank courses with us 'top' in the country

In the recent National Student Survey for nursing and midwifery courses, Teesside University nursing students were 97% satisfied with the overall quality of their courses, and midwifery students were 100% satisfied.

As a Trust we welcome over 100 student nurses and midwives from Teesside University each year, enabling them to gain vital experience of working with patients and their families on our wards and in our communities, which is an essential component to pass the course.

Kay Bloomfield Senior Nurse for Practice Education and Development, responsible for supporting mentors in practice and ensuring quality placements for students, said: "The Trust works in partnership with Teesside University and we provide placement opportunities for student nurses and midwives. The practice element is 50% of their programme and for students to say that they have had an excellent overall experience is a testament to our mentors who have worked really hard to support them in their placement areas. 

Fellow Senior Nurse for Practice Education and Development, Heather Watson added: "We know our nursing and midwifery mentors, and we have over 1300 of them,  invest an awful lot of work and time to meet standards and regulations needed as part of the student placements, so we hope that they feel proud of this achievement and the recognition that our students are rating their studies so highly."
