Nurse associate apprentice speaks at House of Commons
Trainee nurse associate Peggy Murrell talked about the benefits of her apprenticeship at the House of Commons on Monday, following an invitation to address attendees by the MP for Chichester and the government’s Apprentice Ambassador Gillian Keegan.
I am enjoying the course so much and the support and encouragement that comes from my managers, colleagues and the university is second to none
Peggy explained her journey from healthcare assistant towards becoming a registered nurse through an apprenticeship, highlighting that age does not matter.
Peggy, who works at the eye unit and day hospital at Southlands, said: “I was so proud to be given the opportunity to represent our fantastic hospital trust and Brighton University. Being part of the first cohort to undertake the course in this area has been a life-changing experience.
“Not only have I learnt an enormous amount, I am enjoying the course so much and the support and encouragement that comes from my managers, colleagues and the university is second to none.”
