Is it better to get all your travelling desires done before you start Uni? Is it expected to go straight into employment after doing Nursing?

At the end of it all its up to you what you do.
I know this does annoy many nurses ive spoke to, as some forget the skills they've learnt, or have had graduates come back with a high n mighty attitude towards the staff etc.
But in all honesty you just need to remember if you do go travelling after you graduate nursing then you will come back, have to get your hours up etc and re register on the nmc register. Which is a hassle in itself.

Personally I'd say get it done beforehand. If you wait after graduating to get a job due to travelling you'll probably find it more difficult as the people you graduated with will now have experience and the new graduates will have more recent experience. However, nursing does offer opportunities to work abroad as it's a very transferable qualification and there's always the option of a career break.

I would say do it beforehand, however it has been done. I know someone that took a year out afterwards and went and done camp america and it done them no harm with regards to getting work when she came back. I also know a few people who have taken career breaks whilst working and have gone away for 6 month or so with a job to come back to but thats dependent on your line manager.
