Sharing the First Journal on Self-Love!

As the new President of the Nursing and Midwifery Association at the University of Nottingham, my first big project that I wanted to get underway was an NMA Journal. In July, after a lot of time, energy and effort, the first edition was published - albeit a little later than expected.

Well I was so proud of it and so overjoyed by the results I figured that I might as well also share it here with all you. It is an online, public journal however it is written purely by University of Nottingham student nurses and midwives.

It was definitely a journey getting it to publication but I genuinely loved every minute. It was my little passion project and I was so glad the rest of the committee was behind me in getting it to where it needed to be.

The first edition was all about Self-Love as a Student on Placement. It shared ways to express self-love, how to relax over the summer and more importantly, elective tips and experiences. For me it was an important topic to cover, especially for the healthcare degrees as all too often, students are becoming burnt out by giving too much of themselves away in their respective caring capacities. I hoped this journal would shed light on that and encourage people to take care of themselves more.
