Student Nurses and Midwives

A student nurse/midwife works to maintain and promote the health of infants while following the policies and procedures of Central Manchester University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust when gaining practical clinical experience.

A student nurse/midwife must follow the instructions of her clinical mentor. Working at the Trust offers a chance for a student nurse/midwife to practice what she has learned in University.

Students apply their knowledge and skills in the care of infants and their families under the guidance of a mentor and/or preceptor. The student's behaviour should reflect the values and behaviours of Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust at all times. Policies and guidelines for clinical placements must be adhered to and students must follow the values and behaviours of the Trust which are: Pride, Dignity, Empathy, Respect, Compassion and Consideration.

The learning environment of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in which learners are placed is conducive to learning, in order to develop safe, competent, caring practitioners of the future.

The students' experiences will provide them with valuable learning opportunities.
