    Hey,
    I was wondering if anyone knew if St Andrews hospital or Cupar hospital were on the NHS Fife bank? I'm currently a 1st year nursing student and these are the closest hospitals to me, I was hoping to apply to the bank during 1st placement so I could work Christmas.

    If they are under NHS Fife, then they will get nurses from that bank. The website should confirm this for you or if you have doubts, you could also contact them to enquire.

    Unfortunately unless you have significant experience, it is very unlikely that you will be able to work on the bank immediately. Most require at least 6 months experience and then you would need to undergo their training programmes and await disclosure, uniforms etc. Generally, NHS banks only recruit 2 or 3 times a year so there may be a long wait before you can apply.

    It may be a better idea to look at private sector bank, or agency carer roles as these sometimes will allow you to apply with less experience.
