jobs after leaving uni?Watch
I'm due to start uni in sept to do child nursing. I'm soo excited but I'm curious to know What the job prospects are once qualified? Is there many job opportunities? I'm based in the north east. I will be leaving a full time job to start uni and i have a family so just wondering what happens after all the studying? .
If you have then surely you'd know about the job prospects? As surely being a mam you would ensure you can get a job after 3 years of uni?
There are many many job prospects within nursing, and you can go into the community, hospitals, schools etc.
And you can go anywhere if you can uproot your children, you dont have to stay in the north east.
However i do suggest you research a little and have a long hard think about what type of nurse you want to be etc as you will have to work shifts around your family. Most people have a vague idea of what type of nurse they want to be and future goals, thus knowing what job prospects are available. So have a think, as you may not know fully until you start doing placements etc, and then keep looking into this and how you can achieve it instead of waiting until you qualify.
Obviously it's in 3 years time and the job market can vary but I just want a rough idea
Or if anyone knows where to find this info that would b v helpful
just re-read your message saying you've asked the uni's about how many people get jobs and I'm surprised they say they don't know. They should. The Guardian League table has the info, but that is spread across all branches per uni. ie for Kingston it gives an overall 84%, but for child branch it's 96% and that's because some people took a year out
I’m a last year student children’s nurse student. I will graduate in Aberdeen in September and planning to move to Newcastle. I contacted GNCH about application and apparently the are nit recruiting until August. Is it very competitive to get a paeds job around here? When do newly qualified nurses apply for jobs here, I mean up North pretty much everyone got a job secured, I’m slightly worried that I’m too late. I’ve been using nhs jobs as a search engine, any other suggestions where to find vacancies?
