Meet Nickie Rowntree, a determined student enrolled on the Access to HE: Nursing & Midwifery course at Warrington & Vale Royal College.

Nickie, currently a farm worker, chose to retrain and gain the qualifications necessary for pursuing a career in nursing or midwifery. The decision to embark on this journey was sparked by her desire for a more fulfilling occupation after completing an equine science degree and years working with horses and cows.

Having discovered the course through social media, Nickie delved deeper into the details on the college's website. Her ultimate goal is to pursue a Midwifery degree at Liverpool John Moores University, and she believes that this course is instrumental in paving the way for this career goal.

Nickie highlights the excellent tutors at Warrington & Vale Royal College as a key aspect of her positive learning experience. The course conveniently fits into her schedule, allowing her to balance her other commitments seamlessly.

Nickie's enthusiasm for learning shines through as she expresses enjoyment in essay preparations, referencing, and the scientific aspects of the course. She says: “I feel well-supported by my tutors and other members of college staff. I know that if I am stuck or need any help with anything, I will be given the help and guidance I need.”

We want to wish Nickie the best of luck for the future in entering the healthcare field, we have no doubt that she will achieve success in her chosen industry!
