My experience of an alternative placement

02 December 2021
Volume 2 · Issue 6


Katie Campbell shares her experience of a last minute alternative to her placement as part of her SCPHN School Nursing student journey, after her initial alternative placement broke down, and what she learned.

There was a last minute breakdown in the alternative placement I had organised over the summer. SAPHNA responded to my call and stepped up to provide me with an enriching and exciting week as part of my SCPHN SN journey

I have had such an amazing week away in Suffolk with Annie O'Neill and Sue Miller and their company OM Health and Wellbeing, providing health education for both pupils and staff primary and secondary schools (I even ended up on television). Both are such an inspiration to me as I begin my career in school nursing. Both of them are bursting with knowledge and deliver their teaching sessions in such a creative way that captures the imagination of all their audience. Their sessions are presented in a very inclusive way. I thought it was wonderful that they were not only educating all the students but also go on to support the teaching staff. It was a holistic way to support a school, particularly in current times.
