We are a small team of nurses that strive to help students develop new skills to empower themselves and become more responsible for their own health and wellbeing. We work with colleagues as part of the Wellbeing Team and together we offer free advice and support relating to health, mental health and counselling to all USW students. Whether it's on campus or off, a bit of a runny nose or something more serious, we're here to help you in the best way possible.
Hi! My name is Beth, I've worked for USW for almost 3 years, prior this I worked for the NHS in various departments, the Private sector and also for the Police. All of this experience has come in very handy for student health, in ways that would surprise you! Needless to say i'm not easily shocked or embarrassed. The feedback I value the most is students find me really easy to talk to and appreciate my straight talking approach.
I love the varied work that being at USW brings. In addition to dealing with injuries and illness one of the aspects of my job that I enjoy the most and feel is a vital part of our role is enabling and supporting students to learn to take responsibility and care of their own health and wellbeing.
Hi, I'm Tiffany and I have been part of the USW family since March 2023. I'm quite new to the role here but not new to nursing or to USW having studied for my nursing degree here at USW! I'm over the moon to be able to provide health advice and support to students studying at USW as I know first hand how valuable the help can be during a time which can sometimes be somewhat overwhelming.
I have worked in various nursing roles during my career, but the jobs I have found most worthwhile have been when working closely with people to help improve their overall health and well being. I really believe holistic health is the way forward, which means I'm well equipped to, empathise, understand and help with the rollercoaster of student life.
