It'd be useful for her to add in a statement about why she would like to continue working in a caring role, and focus the CV more on what impact her work will have on patients (i.e. assisting residents in their nutritional needs etc instead of 'feeding' as it sounds like she's doing things to people in a one-way type of way instead of it being a caring, collaborative process).

Joining organisations such as NHS Professionals and volunteering would also help with her goal of going into nursing. Plus, writing a separate, personal statement about why she wants to become a nurse and her future aims will also be beneficial for if/when she applies to university, and she can modify it to use in cover letters to jobs she applies for.

I hope that helps a little bit. Here's some links that she may find useful too. Good luck to her :)
