On November 19th, we were thrilled when a number of alumni joined our first term students as volunteer actors in a workshop entitled ‘Forum theatre & Cognitive Rehearsal to Address Bullying (the CRAB project)’. RN alumni played the part of an RN and a Clinical Instructor in a hospital-based scenario to help prepare students to manage this ongoing phenomena. Having RNs present was the highlight for students. Thank you to all!
