DHSSPS asked NIPEC to design new career
leaflets and a website for 15 to 18 year old students and mature students
promoting nursing and midwifery careers.
To help NIPEC design and
influence the content of the leaflets and website, we sought the
views of students (years 12, 13 & 14), mature students and
nursing and midwifery healthcare assistants, in focus group
A number of video clips promoting Nursing & Midwifery
careers, were filmed for the website, and some registrants have also provided inspirational
stories which are also available to view through the website -
www.nursingandmidwiferycareersni.com. Leaflets on Careers in
Midwifery can be downloaded by the clicking the links.
