What is FNF Students Day?

Every year we hold our amazing #FNFStudents Day, bringing together a select number of incredible nursing, nursing associate and midwifery students for a day packed full of networking, learning and celebration.

The 2024 Students Day is sponsored by Chichester University and University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust.

100 students will spend the day networking with peers and quizzing established nursing and midwifery leaders. Attendees are mainly students from our FNF Academy Member organisations but there will be a limited number of places available for non-members, so do keep an eye on our social media channels for details.

Following a unique and memorable day, students will be escorted to Westminster Abbey. Here they will join nursing and midwifery leaders from across the four nations of the United Kingdom for our annual Florence Nightingale Commemoration Service – a real once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
