Student takes on Council of Deans Student Leadership programme

Posted on 16 August 2023

Congratulations to adult nursing student Becky Nisbet who has successfully gained a place on the Council of Deans Student Leadership programme.

Becky Nisbet

Becky is one of a number of nursing students who have been selected as part of the 2023-24 cohort. The programme is a partnership between the Council of Deans of Health and the Burdett Trust for Nursing.

The programme aims to promote and develop leadership skills in future nurses, midwives and allied health professionals by working with first and second year pre-registration students. The programme has a mix of teaching styles, networking events across the UK with other members of the cohort and individual meetings with an allocated coach.

Becky said: “I am really honoured to have been selected to be part of the programme and I’m really looking forward to it.”

Professor David Barrett, Deputy Head of Department (Teaching) said: “I’m thrilled that Becky has been selected to be part of the programme which will provide additional development skills outside of the nursing curriculum here at York. Congratulations Becky and good luck.”
