School nurses take to the stage

School nurses are to exercise their acting skills in a new scheme to help young people discuss and understand sexual healthcare issues.

The Loud Mouth Educational Theatre Company will be attending a plenary session at the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) annual conference to help establish school nurses on the stage.  

Nurses will be helped to develop theatrical skills in order to put on plays with school children that tackle issues such as sexually transmitted diseases, sexual diversity and homophobic bullying.

The RCN say their event is a chance for school nurses to share their expertise and knowledge to ensure that they deliver the best possible care to children and young people.

Delegates will be able to attend numerous presentations and workshops covering sexual health and confidentiality, dermatology and travel health.
