"First-year students from the University of Dundee’s Kirkcaldy and Dundee campuses have joined the programme to test a range of abilites including mental agility, response time, observational skills, physical ability, intelligence and general knowledge.
The scheme, being run in conjunction with army reserves from the 225 (Scottish) Medical Regiment until early December, is aimed at improving both the participants’ physical and emotional resilience.
Nurse lecturer Tom McConnachie set up the programme, which is called Exercise Team Spirit."
“It makes complete sense for us, a medical regiment, to be working with nursing students, as our skillsets are very similar,” said Stephen Tee, a staff sargeant of Regiment 225.
“Leadership and teamwork exercises form the bedrock of everything we do in the army, and the nurses have been good as any soldier,” he added.
