Hello, Can anyone be of help to me? I have been away from Nursing for several years now, but was an Enrolled Nurse. I am very interested in undertaking a conversion course I live in the North West close to Wigan. Can anyone help me as I have not found any information on the web. Do these courses still exist if so what would your advice to me be? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
We were referring to a message posted by 'anonymous' on 24 April 2012 stating that there is an Enrolled Nurse Conversion Course advertised within Greenwich University for this year which, when viewed neither of us could find within their online prospectus?!!
FYI - Google didn't throw anything relevant up at that time either.......? ;-)
Hi, I am still a Enrolled Nurse level 2 registred nurse and work as a level 7 nurse in Chalfont St.Peter. I have successfully completed anvanced care in epilespy and mentorship in practice. I feel I have no option but to try to some how complete a conversion course as I have 20 years still to work. I think my options are to complete a open university full degree course or try another option! Has anyone got any advice for me please. Thanks Christine Crawford
I am an Enrolled nurse, been qualified for 21 years, I work in a nursing home, would also like to do a distance learning course, but sadly there are none available. The only option is to start back and retrain from scratch. I do enjoy my job but it is impossible for promotion, to apply for any other posts as they all state level 1. It is very frustrating. I think the NMC could do more for us, if there is 4000 EN s still on the register I am sure there would be quite a lot given the opportunity to convert. I keep myself up too date with various courses.
Wow, I feel quite disheartened by the whole debate. I left nursing a few years ago and now have decided I miss doing it. I thought about converting from enrolled to registered but not sure I could afford it as I already have a degree in Science so there would be no help at all available
