If you want to work in a rewarding role, you will struggle to find a better option than a career in nursing. While there can be difficult days, there can also be heartwarming moments that make it all worthwhile.
Over the past 18 months, we’ve been reminded of how important the UK’s medical frontline workers are. Faced with unprecedented times, our incredible nurses and doctors have given us all hope and light through the global pandemic. It’s not hard to see why you would be considering taking a nursing degree and becoming part of this. While nursing is no doubt a challenging and difficult career, it is also one with many rewards along the way.
Let’s be honest; no one wants to be stuck in a hospital bed. However, it sometimes it is the best place to be when injured or sick. Often in pain, and sometimes feeling scared and alone, these patients look to nurses for support. Helping people to feel better and improving their lives just by being there is something very special indeed.
Another reason why many people are interested in taking an adult nursing degree is that there are many opportunities to develop your career. You may decide to specialise in a certain area of nursing, for instance:
• Critical care Nurse
• Psychiatric Nurse
• Geriatric Nurse
• Paediatric Nurse
• Orthopaedic Nurse
• Theatre Nurse
• Neonatal Nurse
The requirements for a nursing degree do differ at all levels, depending on the field you want to study in, however, there are lots of areas you may want to explore further through work placements.
It is always satisfying to work in a field whereby you know your hard work is going to be rewarded and there are opportunities for further career development and progression in the future.
If you are interested in taking a nursing degree, you can expect a supportive learning environment, small class sizes, and state-of-the-art facilities at the University of Bolton.
