Work experience...

Just thought I would post a little bit on work experience...

I was talking to a friend today and was asking her about work experience and what would really give a good taste into working nursing life. She said she would probably advise against care homes as it tends not to be a good representation of nursing, and hospices, although useful may be a rather "emotional" experience. Probably the best experience you can get is in a hospital as this would give you a taster of nursing.

Nursing isn't just about working in wards. Some nurses work in theatres, communities and other places too. It is useful to explore the different types of nursing before choosing a course or starting a job.
