Read Sophie's Story

Sophie Macdonald is studying in her first year of the BSc Adult Nursing at the Department of Nursing, Stornoway campus.

"If nursing has been your dream, my advice would be... DO IT! I have not once looked back, it has been such a positive experience. The lecturers are very supportive and approachable. Their passion and knowledge in the nursing field really shines through in their teaching.

I am currently based on a hospital placement where I have had the opportunity to use the knowledge and skills that have been taught in the classroom. Every day on the ward has been exciting and I have learned and practised new clinical skills under the supervision of a mentor."
