The stand-out moment from my nurse training

Katie Tarr, Child Nursing degree

Katie Tarr from Newport is studying the child nursing degree.

"Before studying nursing, I worked as a play worker for children with special needs. Child nursing was the perfect choice as I enjoy working with children and their families and can use my background to alleviate fears through play and distraction.

"The stand-out moment from my nurse training was being able to help discharge a child who had spent the majority of their life in hospital.

"It was amazing to support the family throughout their time in hospital and to work as part of a team to facilitate the child going home."
