CAREER DESTINATION

NURSE

SAVING LIVES AND SUPPORTING PUBLIC HEALTH. The real heroes we all want to be. There are many paths and destinations for nurses within the modern health service. Hospital Nurse, Children’s Nurse, Schools Nurse, Learning Disability Nurse, Occupational Health Nurse to name only a few. Not everyone knows how valuable each and everyone of these positions are to supporting the vital healthcare we all need and rely on. As a nurse you could work in an NHS or private hospital, at a hospice, at a children's care home, at a GP practice or in a health centre, across schools or care homes in any district. In these career destinations, working environments may be physically and emotionally demanding - the experience you gain before further training can be vital to your ability to succeed.

COMPASS POINTS. Post nursing degree employment rates are very high. After graduation you will become an integral part of the healthcare system. Deciding to become specialist will require further study and experience. Career Destinations such as a Children’s Nurse, Schools Nurse, Learning Disability Nurse or Occupational Health Nurse can involve usually at least 2 years post qualification experience prior to any career development. With a postgraduate qualification, you could train as an advanced nurse practitioner or clinical nurse specialist, then potentially as a nurse consultant.

For example as a School Nurse, with experience, you could develop as a manager of a vital community service or perhaps work in education or research. Nursing degrees can also lead to important managerial roles within public health, such as a Health Service Manager.

 

Although such a career destination can be open to many graduates with diverse career backgrounds - an applicant with an impressive healthcare career record would make a considerable impact in the community. Nurses have often retrained as SEND Teachers – particularly PMLD Teachers who have vital experience administering essential medication. The options for progression are vast.
