Episode six - Student Nurses: Bedpans and Bandages

Wednesday 19 March 2014

First year student Alistair will step up a gear in this week’s episode of Student Nurses: Bedpans and Bandages on Friday night.

Student Nurses: Bedpans and Bandages is a prime time ITV1 programme which follows the diverse backgrounds and lives of students from the University of Salford and Birmingham City University; with all the pressures, emotions and challenges they face in training and on the wards.

Alistair gave up his job as a carpet fitter to make a difference as a nurse, and previous episodes have shown him get to grips with his first placement on a ward at Royal Bolton Hospital. This time viewers will see the progress Alistair has made when he scrubs up to assist surgeons performing an operation on a patient he has been caring for.  

Episodes one, two, three, four and five can be viewed on the ITV website.
