Read Sophie's Story

Sophie Macdonald is studying on the BSc Adult Nursing at the Department of Nursing, Stornoway campus.

"This course was perfect for me as it enabled me to stay on the island. It also excited me as it offered a diverse range of learning opportunities through a mix of theory and practical work, both in and out of the classroom."

Any advice for those considering studying nursing with us?

"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.

My hospital placement gave me the opportunity to use the knowledge and skills taught in the classroom. Every day on the ward was exciting and I learned and practised new clinical skills under the supervision of a mentor."
