Knitters- Can you help us? ๐Ÿงถ Our students need knitted breasts for demonstrating lactation to new parents: Knitted breasts are used as props for demonstrating lactation to new parents. Our student midwives, health visitors, school nurses and child nurses on our UNICEF baby friendly accredited courses all learn valuable skills to support babies and new parents, but we need your help! Download a pattern here: https://lcgb.org/lcgb-knitted-breast-the-pattern/ What to do if you have knitted some? Please post or drop them in to our receptions, in Chelmsford or Cambridge, marked for Nursing and Midwifery! #Knitting #StudentMidwife #AngliaRuskin #StudentNurse #KnittedBoobs #KnittersOfInstagram #Wool #Knitting #BreastFeeding #ARUProud #GoingToARU

"Hi ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผ โ™€๏ธ, My name is Victoria. I am 37 years old, and I am a second year Nurse Apprentice student. I work on a very busy, acute surgical cardiothoracic and Transplant ward, which recently has emerged with Thoracic and Tavi surgical wards due to the current pandemic. This enables us to still carry out critical surgeries and the care that coincides with the patient recovery. I adore my placement ward, as I am able to gain a wealth of knowledge surrounding cardiac surgery and all it entails, and follow the lung nd heart transplant patient journeys. It is on this ward, alongside the very knowledgeable nurses, specialist nurses, doctors and surgeons with other MDT members on the ward (physios, dietician, Chaplin, occupational therapists, pharmacists, in house social workers, and many more) that I am able to gain the opportunity to learn some of the specialist skill sets needed to complete a day as a nurse on this ward. Every day I feel grateful that I'm able to complete my nursing journey here. It is a very heavy ward, that requires a knowledgeable skill set as a nurse and health care assistant. I work 30+ hours a week as a health care assistant with additional learning opportunities to support my studies, and the other 7.5 hours a week is where I fit in the full-time degree lectures or student placement hours alongside additional study time in my own time (among life duties & running businesses). I am also a deputy student rep for our cohort @angliaruskin and I am part of the student advisory board for @elsevier_nurse_ed." -Victoria, @victorias_nursingjourney #ARUProud #ARUHeroes #InternationalWomensDay #IWD2021 #WeAreHere #WeAreTogether #StudentNurse #AngliaRuskin #ARUCambridge #MondayMotivation @RoyalPapworth
