Get Started with Health & Care: A Day in the Life of a Nurse/Carer
Working in a hospital or care home is a challenging career, which is why we are hosting a ‘Day in the life of a Nurse/Carer’ event!
As you enter, you will experience the role of a carer in a hospital or home environment and you will be asked to identify what skills and qualities you think are required. To give you a real feel for life as a nurse or carer, you will have the opportunity to change into uniform, visit patients, introduce yourself and discover what the issues are. In addition, you will complete a ‘this is me’ personal profile with the patient and take observations including blood pressure, temperature and breathing rate to record on a personal care plan.
