Claire Martin – Deputy Chief Nurse said,
“This is the first of hopefully many celebration conferences, this time for Band 5 nurses. It’s been fabulous to network, to discuss quality and safety issues together, whilst enjoying ourselves. We hope to hold a celebration conference for Health Care Assistants later in the year.”
Learning was made enjoyable by having spot prizes, donated by various local businesses.
Nurses were provided with a washing line on which they were able to peg their quotes demonstrating “Why we love nursing.”
There was also a challenge from the Chief Nurse, Kim O’Keeffe, for people to write quotes about “How I will nurse differently tomorrow after attending the conference”
Conference attendee, nurse Frances Crawley, tweeted, “Amazing fun at the RCHT Band 5 celebration conference. Loved helping and being a part of this. Thank you Claire Martin and both Amy’s for being such an inspiration to us all.”
