In October last year, it was announced that NHS newly qualified nurse vacancies are expected to rise to more than 43,000. We know that nurses in the NHS are vital links in supporting our community; they not only help things to run smoothly throughout hospitals, but they also bring empathy to many people need in times of struggle.
The numbers of vacancies alone are staggering and demonstrate a desperate need to recruit newly qualified nurses, so here is why you should consider a career in nursing.
If you always put others before yourself or regularly go out of your way to help others? You have the potential to become a great nurse.
Becoming a nurse gives you the chance to put these characteristics into your career. You can walk away from each shift, knowing you did your best to care for other people and feel satisfied knowing how many people you helped.
Fulfilling a need
Due to the high demand of nurses, the graduate prospects are increased in this profession more than most. In fact, according to the Complete University Guide, 95% of students who study nursing go straight into a job after graduation.
Diverse career options
Becoming a nurse does not restrict you to only working on a hospital ward. Nursing degrees can take you down many paths, including school nursing, children’s nursing, adult nursing, midwifery and palliative care. Nursing degrees can be tailored to fit your interests.
A well-respected profession
Becoming a nurse is one of the noblest professions. Nurses don’t seek glory or recognition for their work, although, without it, hospitals around the world would fall apart. It is for this reason that nurses are highly valued in their communities.
