It’s no secret that Nurses are in high demand across the UK’s Healthcare sector, resulting in a wealth of nursing jobs across England and Scotland.
Nurses play a significant role in hospitals, clinics and private practices, forming a large percentage of the UK’s wider Healthcare workforce. Nursing job duties include communicating between patients and doctors, caring for patients, administering treatments using an array of medication, systems and tools, and supervising Healthcare Assistants.
The profession covers a wide range of specialisms, and some of the job titles you can get as a Nurse include:
- Adult Nurse
- Children's Nurse
- Health play Specialist
- Health Visitor
- High Intensity Therapist
- Learning Disability Nurse
- Mental Health Nurse
- Physician Associate
Jobs in nursing can be found across a wide range of employers which include, but are not limited to the National Health Service (NHS), private sector clinics and hospitals, private sector healthcare providers that have been contracted to provide services to NHS patients, voluntary organisations and nursing or residential homes.
Nursing jobs – the skills and experience you need
To work as a Nurse in the UK you will need a degree, which can be a full-time or part-time course approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Nurses also need to pass a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check to get a job, as well as undergo a revalidation process every three years to renew their registration.
Jobs in nursing can be physically and emotionally demanding, and you must have both the desire and ability to work with people from all walks of life. Because a day in a nursing job can be fast-paced, unpredictable and reactive, you must also be quick on your feet, yet thorough with a strong attention to detail in order to avoid risky mistakes being made.
