    I was so gutted that you need 3 months of NHS experience to apply for NHS professionals! Seriously need some bank work (as a HCA).

    Good luck to you all.

    Try hospital nursing banks instead, some may take on people with no experience. Other than that, if you are studying nursing then your placement trust may have a fast track system in place to get student nurses on the bank. Mine did when I was training.

    Hi,

    Yeah the reason I wanted to get on the bank was so that I could start working while studying straightaway in September. I have 3 years experience working with children with special needs in every other setting but healthcare. I think I will just wait now, or join an agency and do shifts at my current workplace. Thanks for the advice.

    Hiya,

    Some agencies do count that as care experience, you just have to shop about a bit. Mrs moonkatt managed it when she was looking for work. Just use language in the application to them that makes it sound like care, no doubt a lot of the stuff you did with special needs kids probably fell into that bracket.

    Hope you find something. pm me if you want, I might be able to help with it

    Ah thanks Mr and Mrs Moonkatt!

    I'm going to email/ring all agencies in the area and see what happens. The ones I have enquired about have just asked me straight out if I have NHS experience. I know there is a similiar place to the place that I work for nearby who are under NHS. The actual hospital banks themselves have told me that they are not taking on any HCA's as they would prefer registered nurses and/or student nurses! Might have to blag and say I am a student nurse. (will be in 4 months!) I think you're right, it is probably using the right language. I'll chuck a few buzzwords in and see what happens!

    Thanks again!
