Very impressed with the ear care course I attended today. Jamie was extremely personable, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about an area he is obviously experienced and interested in. Will recommended to colleagues and friends who are looking for an ear care course. Well done jamie, we need more teachers like you in nursing.
