If you enjoy caring for people and you are looking for a varied job, this could be an ideal career for you. Nurses care for people who are ill, injured, or have physical disabilities.
To work as a nurse, you need to complete an approved course. For this you will need proof of English and maths skills, good health and a good character.
Once you have started a nurse training programme, you will divide your time between university and supervised work in local hospitals and the community. You will also need Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) clearance.
A good nurse has patience and understanding. They have the ability to remain calm under pressure. They are also compassionate and sensitive.
