Placement Notes

NHS is hosting a series of insight days and a week-long virtual work experience to help you find out about the different roles and opportunities within nursing. The opportunities are ideal if you haven’t considered a career in nursing before and are keen to find out a little more, if you are undecided on what you want to do after school/college, and if you already feel that nursing would be a great career and want to find out a little more. You’ll hear directly from active nurses, some of whom are still in training or newly qualified, from across the varied disciplines of nursing, the variety of roles, the skills and qualifications we look for, what the training is like and what you’ll learn along the way. The day runs from 10-2.30 (with a break for lunch around 12) and will give you the opportunity to find out about a career in nursing and the four fields of nursing, routes into nursing and also hear directly from nurses. We’ll look at the impact from Covid, the diversity of places nurses work and roles they undertake, and the variety of skills and characteristics that are suited to a career in nursing. There will be an opportunity to ask questions, about the profession and about what it’s like to be a nurse, and interactive tasks throughout the day. At the end of the day you should know if you want to find out more about nursing, and how. Find out more about a career in nursing here –
