Joining British Army with Childrens nursing degree?Watch
So i've tried to ask on the live chat but simply responded with a really useless 'we'll we don't have children in the armed forces'. I don't think she knew what she was talking about tbh, i've read that children's nurses can also practice as adult nurses as long as they have a pin. Would I be able to work in the reserves as a nurse with a childrens nursing degree?
I can't comment for the Army, but the RAF only accept application if you have a degree in Adult Nursing, not Paedeatrics. We don't have children serving so there's no requirement. My guess would be that the Army have the same policy, but you would need to check with their team to be certain.
The situation may have been different about 25 years ago, when the Armed Forces had separate service hospitals; I think that they may have had paediatric nurses at that point as their care extended to the children of the personnel living there.
