Nursing students collaborate to develop leadership and communication skills

Working as a nurse demands well-articulated leadership and communications skills.

Working collaboratively, students from the Bachelor of Sciences in Nursing stream worked alongside Health Care Assistant students in a recent simulation exercise to develop both communication and leadership skills.

Part of this exercise involved taking part in the spaghetti marshmallow tower challenge, followed by a simulation exercise drawing upon both skills for care of an elderly patient.
