Join us for a Virtual Insight Day to hear from nurses working across a range of nursing fields, find out more about the profession, the key skills needed and how you can start to develop them.
We offer roles that span everything from science, technology and innovation to leadership, management and collaboration.
Let us show you what a career in nursing can offer and introduce you to the faces behind the masks. You might be surprised at what you learn.
At the NHS we provide care for all members of society and we want our nursing teams to represent the diversity of the population.
We are looking for young people who are driven to make a difference. People who are passionate about helping others and who are ready to take on a challenge.
We are particularly keen to encourage more young men to join these sessions to help us to achieve our aim of representing the people we serve. Nursing is a fantastic career choice for anyone, whoever you are.
Come and find out if nursing is the right career for you. We can’t wait to meet you.
“As a man, this experience has really changed my perception of nursing and perhaps on becoming a nurse myself. I had never really considered it before but I definitely am now.”
“I had a great time talking to actual nurses and learning first-hand what it is like to be a Nurse, and their journeys which I found so interesting!”
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.
