A superb programme.

I feel privileged to have listened to the speakers and no longer feel intimidated by politics.

The programme made politics reachable and tailor-made for nursing. 


One of the best courses I have ever been on in my career. Thank-you very much. 

I intend to be politically aware and to be more active in future


Informative, empowering and envisioning.
