THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE SPOKE WITH ABIGAIL MCGARVEY, A FIRST YEAR ADULT NURSING

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spoke via video link with Abigail McGarvey, a first-year Adult Nursing student at Ulster University about her video diary created to demonstrate a typical shift during her first placement as a student nurse.

For nursing students across the United Kingdom, studying and undertaking placements during the pandemic has been a challenge like no other.



Abigail told The Duke and Duchess about some of the challenges she had faced, including the emotional impact of patients being unable to receive visits from their families.

She also spoke about her experience of starting university during a pandemic, and the impact that COVID-19 has had on her ability to socialize and learn with fellow students in person due to lockdown restrictions and a subsequent increase in online learning.



Prince William to nursing students: “It is very difficult for you guys to go straight into a pandemic…That’s really baptism by fire”.

The Duchess to nursing students: “Nursing is one of the most trusted professions in the country. You could not have chosen a better career choice. It’s needed now more than ever”.
