Time to Play: QUB School of Nursing and Midwifery


Netball NI, Here if you Need Officer Andi Magee, has been delivering sessions to Queens University Belfast School of Nursing and Midwifery, year one undergraduate student nurses. 


The sessions have been funded by the Queens fund which is sponsored by QUB Alumni. 


As nursing, is a stressful job and it is important to look after your own well-being, netball was a first choice for Alison Smart & Laura Creighton as lecturers in Education. “We wanted the nursing students, to have fun and play, as well as being social. It has been a real success we have had first time netballers and returners who hadn’t played since school. Thank-you so much to Netball NI for supporting us with this opportunity, so far so good the students have been loving it.'


Head of Development, Lisa Rickett,


'It has been great to work with QUB on this programme, introducing our sport to new people and re-engaging those who have played before is a key part of our participation development plans. Having Andi delivering for us, we know the students will have such a fun time and relax away from their day to day work/uni pressures alongside the opportunity to learn some new skills and enjoy matches.'


'We are always keen to work with new groups, get in touch with us if you would like to get involved.'
