Read How Student Nurse Aine is Enjoying her Glenkeen Placement

Ever wonder how student nurses cope when securing a placement in Hutchinson Care Homes? Let student nurse Aine Cuddy who is a first year student undertaking a eleven week placement in Glenkeen tell you in her own words :

“My name is Aine Cuddy and I am currently a first year nursing student at Ulster University.  I am specialising in adult nursing which enables me to experience a number of practice learning experiences from mental health facilities to day centres.  For my 11 week placement I am working in Glenkeen House in Randalstown.  I have so far completed five weeks and fortunately I am really enjoying it.  Through the supporting staff I felt so welcomed from day one which meant a lot, especially since I am quite far from home in County Tyrone.  I am able to learn new skills every day which I can take on with me in my years as a student nurse.  I have six weeks left of working in Glenkeen House which is scary to say as the time is flying.  I am so fortunate to have been placed in  this nursing home as my eleven week placement as it is a place I will always look back on with fond memories.”
