hey im starting to worry i only have a semester left till i qualify and dont no where to apply or how to go about it? i also dont feel confident due to lots of poor placements, does anyone else feel this way?
im more worried at the fact that there seems to be very few jobs for nurses here. All the trusts in the area have put in place major cut backs an arent taking any new staff on so the chance of me finding a job in northern ireland are looking pretty slim
Hi, I have been offered a job as an orthopaedic nurse but have just found out that funding may not be approved for the post which means they may withdraw the job offer. I'm now considering looking outside of nursing as the whole lack of jobs and budget cuts has become really stressful.
Hi there i have just started my 3rd year in April just gone i am probably the most under confident student nurse ever after a few bad placements so your not alone. It really does depend on what mentors you get! i came into nursing to work in A and E only lol nothing else ever interested me. What type of jobs do you all want? :)
hello everyone, I qualified 2 months ago job prospects are looking quite dim. Only one job came up in my local trust, i applied for that but I was unsuccessful.I have applied to many nursing homes but i have been unsuccessful. If I had known this would have been the situation, I would have not done all that study. I found it very difficult to study with a young family. I got very good results, but current employers only look at experience which I do have from the course but that is not considered. I didn't realize that at the ed there would be no job. I hope the situation improves.
