    Sorry if it's a silly question. For example, would an adult nurse be specialised in a specific area ie. A&E, renal, cancer etc


    Thanks!

    Nursing degrees are pretty generalised so you don't specialise per say

    Thank you! So if one wanted to specialise in let's say cardiology, do they require experience from elective placements or further training after graduation?

    I'm not entirely sure (i m doing mental health nursing myself so dont have much knowledge of jobs in the adult field) , but from a quick look at NHS jobs some cardiology jobs appear to except people as newly qualified nurses so you might be able to apply straight out of university check out the job listings might give you an idea what they want from the job descriptions https://www.jobs.nhs.uk/xi/search_va...?action=return

    You get a job in the speciality that interests you. There is scope to do further education and study within most roles. Experience as a student can sometimes help you get to where you want to be quicker
