Congress (My own unique report)

  1. I had a really great day at congress today, and got a huge haul of freebies. I went to some really interesting seminars, the freebies were the best bit though:

    19 black pens
    4 note pads
    3 highlighters
    3 post it pads
    3 mugs
    3 pencils
    2 blue pens
    2 keyrings
    1 neck chain
    1 alcohol hand wash
    1 windscreen scarper
    1 coaster
    1 mini radio
    1 mini bottle of Tia Lussio
    1 fuzzbug
    top nursing tip card
    emergency first aid care

    and the best bit, the modern matrons phone number and a job application form for a 3 star hospital!!!!!!

    sorry the key rings are all spoken for! If you send my your address or work address I'll mail you a mug, I am not sure where I am going to put them all!

    anyhow, the matron I was speaking to is from Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals which is where I am from origionaly. and it is a 3 star trust, where as Hull is only a 1 star trust.

    I am going home tomorrow and will fill in the form then... fingers crossed, or I could be applying for Macdonalds again!
    I think I would rather stay in Hull for a while, as I know some of the policies and the staff but a jobs a job...


    Heck I even spoke to someone from S.E.London today,

    I had a great day...maybe next year I'll get to go back as a staff nurse?

    Congress in the UK means the annual conference of the Royal College of Nursing. Earnest debate by day, celebration of nursing by night! :hatparty: Between debates, the delegates visit the exhibition area for freebies and remove anything not screwed down!
