The annual nursing and midwifery careers fair at UWS was another resounding success this year, with many students securing full-time employment on the day again this time round.
More than 300 students from nursing and midwifery courses in the School of Health and Life Sciences attended the fair at the University’s Lanarkshire Campus on 29th May 2019.
Organised by the University’s School of Health and Life Sciences, there were more than 20 exhibitors, including NHS Scotland, nursing agencies, national and local government agencies, and private healthcare providers.
Exhibitors commented on the efficient organisation of the event and on the quality of the students at UWS, highlighted by the fact that 98 per cent of UWS nursing and midwifery graduates were in work or further study six months after graduation according to the Higher Education Statistics Agency’s (HESA) latest figures.
James Taylor, Deputy Dean of the University’s School of Health and Life Sciences, commented: “It was a pleasure to welcome our exhibitors, many of whom had travelled from across the UK, on what is the fourth occasion we have held this event, and the first at our new award winning Lanarkshire campus, to meet and connect with our students."
“It was very clear from the interactions and engagement that took place between the exhibitors and students that this was a very positive event. I wish to acknowledge my appreciation to all those involved in providing this opportunity to our students.”James Taylor, Deputy Dean, UWS School of Health and Life Sciences
