Thank you Megan
Ex-Student Megan Barnfield starts work this week at Rotherham Hospital as a newly qualified nurse whose graduation from Sheffield Hallam University has been brought forward so that she can care for patients during the current coronavirus crisis.
Megan was a student at Rawmarsh Community School completing Year 11 in 2015.
“I’m in my final year of nursing at Sheffield Hallam and I did have six months left of training. I went to Thomas Rotherham College straight after school and did health and social care, science and sociology which followed on from the options that I took at school.
I can’t thank the teachers at school enough for setting me up to be able to do this! I’m really nervous to start but this is my ultimate dream job; the hardest thing is that I have had to move out from home so that I don’t put my family at risk. But FaceTime is a lifesaver!
The training at Hallam is so hands-on and I also got placement time so I feel prepared to start now. It’s a really busy time and we are having additional trust training this week – I will start working as a nurse now and I will be dealing with end of life covid patients.”
Megan wants to thank everyone for all the support she is currently receiving “but it just feels best to go and help and do what I’m passionate for and trained so hard for.”
Megan, the staff and students at Rawmarsh Community School can’t thank you enough – we are proud of your achievements and would love to hear from any other RCS alumni students who are key workers at this time. email@example.com
