Perceptions of Nursing and Midwifery

Using social learning with young people!

Promoting nursing via safe social learning in schools

Describe your story ...

based on feedback from nearly 2,000 young people we set about increasing awareness of school nurses - we wanted a fun and in the moment approach, so we worked with Makewaves and young people to develop digital badges - a bit like scouts or brownie badges but on-line. Children and young people worked with us to co-produce a badge which raised awareness of what school nurses are and how they can help - this then led to a whole series of public health badges! The learning has been incredible and YP really enjoy completing the tasks!

This looks like a really great way to promoting healthier lifestyles for children as well as teaching them the role of the nurse! Love this!

Fantastic idea! Wonder whether we could ask the scouts, girl guides and others to take one or two of the badges on too?

I’m sure there would be some interest, the Scout Association commissioned a crowd sourcing ideas from its young people to find out what they like to do as a Scout and this showed that they wanted to help people and make a difference to others lives so the #MillionHands campaign was born.

Hi the scouts are using some of the badges; Lancashire Scouts are really running with the AMR element - we would be delighted if the guides and brownies got involved
