"Candles" ethnic minority recruitment project
A project in Slough to recruit more nursing and midwifery students from Asian and Caribbean backgrounds is featured in the Guardian of 18/09/04. It aims to counter negative attitudes to nursing among Indian and Pakistani communities. It is being run by Professor Elizabeth Anionwu of Thames Valley University. The project's target is to recruit 40 people from South Asian and Caribbean backgrounds on to student nurse and midwifery courses at Thames Valley University by September 2005.
