Meet our committee:
Hello, my name is Natalie. I am a 2nd year student nurse (adult stream) and the GCU Nursing Society President.
My biggest achievement so far has been being selected to be part of the Council of Deans of Health’s, Student Leadership Programme (#150Leaders). This has given me a passion for leadership. I believe through good leadership we can provide better, more personalised, care for the people we look after. I am also passionate about the mental well-being of student nurses, and I am currently working on a UK-wide project regarding this.
I am a huge fan of Twitter as I think it’s a great way to keep up to date with best practice and new initiatives. It’s also a useful means to connect with healthcare professionals- as long as it’s used professionally, and in line with the NMC Guidelines, of course!
I am proud to be the GCU Nursing Society President. For me, we are all from different years and different fields, but we go out into the world wearing the same GCU uniform. This is why we need an active nursing society. My aim for the nursing society is to provide peer support- no one knows better the struggles we are facing better than those who are going through it with is. I hope the society will allow us to share our experiences, challenge the status quo and create positive change where it is needed.
Through our events, I want our learning to be complemented to make us more rounded and knowledgeable nurses of the future. Our courses are demanding so I hope we can try to have a little bit of fun along the way too!
Events Officer: Rebecca
Hey! My name is Rebecca Hutton and I am a 2nd year adult nursing student and class representative. I am also your events coordinator for the GCU Nursing Society.
I joined the Nursing Society through my class representative position when it was proposed that the nursing society might be started up again since being inactive. This sparked my interest as when joining GCU, I had wanted to be a part of the society, so what better way to be a part of it than to be involved in running it! I have been involved in leadership roles throughout my life as a part of scouting or running music clubs in school and I hope my experience, along with the experiences the other committee members have, will bring new ideas to the society.
Being a part of the GCU Nursing Society is very important to me as I believe it to be a great way of meeting future colleagues and new friends! As the events coordinator I aim to give members a mixture of well organised academic, social and charity events. I would love to be able to hold events that give student nurses a sense of community as well as giving them additional learning opportunities through academic events and opportunities to raise for a good cause.
Social Media Officer: Nicole
Hey! My name is Nicole Hutcheson and I am a 2nd year child nursing student. I am also the Social Media Officer for the GCU Nursing Society.
My role is to keep everyone updated with what is happening within the Nursing Society. I am passionate about caring for others and that’s why I decided to study nursing. I feel it’s important that as nurses we all stick together as it can be a challenging but fulfilling career. The difference we make to so many individuals lives is so rewarding.
Finance Officer: Kim
Hey! I'm Kim, 2nd year child nursing student. My role as Finance Officer is mainly focused on accounts and fundraising!
When I moved to Glasgow to start studying, I was a little nervous about leaving home and meeting new people. However, studying at GCU has opened so many doors for me, meeting some awesome, driven individuals and giving me opportunities to develop and grow. I have this vision of creating a community at GCU, where we nursing students uplift and support one another when things get tough while celebrating the little victories too! I believe the society will be a great way in which we can establish this environmment!
I would love to see the society engage with the wider community, creating better relationships through education, workshops and fundraising.
