Meet RCN Student Ambassador, Victoria Udeh

Victoria Udeh 12 Apr 2021 Eastern

My name is Victoria Udeh and  am a first year mental health nursing student studying at the University of Hertfordshire. 

My name is Victoria Udeh and I am a first year mental health nursing student studying at the University of Hertfordshire. Before embarking on this career path, I was working as a health and safety officer in a safety firm in Lagos, Nigeria. I also had a shoe making business where I produced bespoke shoes.

I wanted to become a Student Ambassador because I want to represent the interest of students. The RCN can be at its best when the voices of all members are heard, including students. I have a natural leadership ability and believe these skills and passion for leadership propelled me to always have the interests of students at heart. I have the ability to multi-task, organise and negotiate. I am committed to delivering the best of any responsibility given to me in an excellent and a timely manner.

While at university, I was involved in many different leadership roles including chair of the student council, International Students Association president, academic committee chair and sports secretary. 

I decided to study nursing as I would like to make a difference to service users and their families and bring a smile to their faces. Knowing that I made that happen will bring me great satisfaction. While nursing, I engage in activities that promote learning and development to see that care is recovery-focused and person-centred. 

Nursing is beautiful career and nurses make a great impact globally, while making a difference to people’s everyday lives. I want people to see us differently and come closer to understanding the significance of what we really do. That way, we would be better appreciated.

I am excited to be a student ambassador so I can put my leadership skills to good use and make a difference to the nursing profession.
