Ameera was born in the Caribbean, but lived in Coventry, West Midlands, for six years prior to coming to Cumbria. Her sister is currently studying her Adult Nursing course at the University of Cumbria as well.
Ameera was a healthcare assistant prior to starting her course, which she decided to take “to develop myself professionally and give back as much to society as I possibly can."
The lectures are very interesting and engaging, and staff are very approachable and friendly.
She says she chose the University of Cumbria “because the environment was very positive and the staff were very open and friendly, and I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives and help them to improve.”
She adds, “The course is very engaging and it gives me an opportunity to apply all my past knowledge and skills to my ongoing/future as a nurse.”
