Last Update, March 2017

A common strategy used by marketers to make sales is the word of mouth. The education sector also relies strongly on this strategy to cement their establishments. Students are very vocal and will always communicate their thoughts, feelings and general experiences about an institution. What they communicate can either lead to an increase or drop in enrollment rates of educational institutions.

We have used the case of Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) to highlight tips on gaining positive student experience.  MMU won the Student Experience Award at the Guardian Higher Education Awards.

MaryS November 1, 2017 0

nursing agency tipsMuch has been written about the nursing shortage, with the primary focus on the downside for RN’s working in the acute care setting. Where there is a downside, there is always an upside, and many nurses have found a way to use the shortage to their advantage: registry and travel nursing. Of course, it is not for everyone, but an increasing number of nurses are finding there are options that can accommodate their lifestyle and needs. They are choosing assignments anywhere from one day to 3 months, from local to long distance.
