Florence Nightingale Foundation is thrilled to announce that the University of Derby has become the very first Higher Education Institution to join FNF’s Academy as a member.
This is an exciting and historic moment; when FNF opened the Academy doors to HEIs in November 2021, we envisaged future generations of nurses and midwives engaging with our programmes, debates and agendas. Now, nursing and midwifery students, as well as academic staff at the University of Derby will be the first to enjoy these opportunities for growth and development.
Education providers play such a crucial part in encouraging, shaping and inspiring students, and the Foundation couldn’t be more pleased that the University of Derby is our inaugural member. By joining the Academy as members, student and registered nurses and midwives at the university will become part of FNF’s network and will be able to make an impact across their fields of expertise.
With this membership, students and academic staff at the University of Derby can, among other benefits, contribute to policy consultations, gain opportunities for elective placements, and enjoy access to leadership programmes including Nightingale Frontline, a peer group coaching service.
