"I undertook this MSc programme as a health professional wishing to remain and work within the NHS, specialising within another specific subject area. This course has enabled me to build on and develop my knowledge and skills which enabled me to transition into a Nursing career. It has also allowed me to gain further insight into the importance of self-development, understanding resilience within the NHS better and that as Health Professionals, the importance of prioritising our own health and well-being to remain healthy and enjoy our work safely while providing care to others."Michelle Witherington, currently studying MSc Nursing (Pre-registration - Adult)
