Live video-streaming

Around 65 students attended the talks, with more than 500 more watching via Facebook Live video-streaming.

The event was organised by second year London South Bank University student Daniel Gooding, Middlesex University student Andy Roy, London Region students information officer Sue Lister and RCN London regional administrator Zoe Jammeh, it was run in association with London South Bank and Middlesex universities.

Mr Gooding said: ‘This conference was very important as nursing is changing and we, as students, need to be aware of these changes so we do not limit our career aims and goals.

‘We also hoped that by live streaming we may reach people unsure about going or continuing into nursing due to funding changes, and this may just help them decide to join the course or carry on with it.’
