Kehinde Bawa


BSc (Hons) Nursing (Top-Up)

Kehinde Bawa graduated from the BA (Hons) Nursing (Top-Up) course with First Class Honours in 2019 and is the first recipient of the University’s Helen McArdle Nursing prize. She is currently working as a perioperative nurse at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital in Abuja.

A good nurse needs critical thinking skills, the ability to work in a team, and excellent communication in enhancing healthcare outcomes and patients' experience. These are some of the vital lessons I learned during the BSc (Hons) Nursing Top-Up course at the University of Sunderland.

A nurse needs to remain versatile to be an effective member of the multidisciplinary team, otherwise, the delivery of quality care will be a mirage, especially in poor resource settings, as found in Sub-Saharan Africa where I practise.
