Dilemma over D/N Course

  • Comment
I am a staff Nurse in the community (District Nurse). I am planning to do the D/N course this year with a view to further my career. However there are talks about cutting down the number of District Sisters. I am unsure whether to proceed with my plan. Can you advise me please?

Answer:

I would recommend that you proceed with your plan to do the D/N course, and I say this for two reasons:

  • Being currently employed in the community you are in a very good position to be selected for a District Sister's appointment in due course.
  • The fact that there are talks about cutting down the number of District Sisters does not necessarily mean that, when the time comes and you have completed the course, you will not get a job. Recruitment of District Sisters will prevail it will be more but competitive. Thus there is no reason that you should not have a chance of being one of the ones selected based on you current hands-on experience and a good result from the D/N course. ..... so think positively!

I hope this helps.
