Thanks to Charlotte, who we met on Twitter (@NursesJobs if you would like to follow us!). Charlotte's two and a half years into her course and is gaining a sense of where she wants her nursing career to go....
2nd November 2014
We pose a few questions to Charlotte, who's now just 9 months away from completing her nursing degree course. She's weighing up the areas she thinks she might like to work in, and points to ambitions of further specialism through a masters degree....
What were you doing before you started studying as a nurse?
Before starting university I studied biology, chemistry, English, geography and psychology in sixth form at Brentwood county high school; then did an access course in nursing, midwifery and health studies at Barking and Dagenham college.
What made you want to train to become a nurse?
I've always wanted to work in the science factor, and one day I decided I want to be a nurse. I'm the fourth generation of nurses in my family so I guess it's in the blood!
Do you have a part-time job while you study - if so, what is it?
I work in a pharmacy as a dispenser and assistant throughout my course and I'm still there now!
How are you finding your nursing degree course so far?
It's been a difficult 2 and a half years, the assignments are long and placement hours are exhausting. However, it's all worth it in the end.
What would you say to someone who’s considering a degree in nursing?
Go for it if it's what you really want to do! It's a challenging job as many patients are hard work, but you'll find yourself liking certain aspects.
What area of nursing do you want to work in?
I'd like to further my education hopefully by going back to university, however, I'm torn between sexual health and cardiac nursing.
If you had the choice, would you prefer to work for the NHS or for a private healthcare company?
It depends what you're after. I’d probably stay within the NHS.
What’s your long-term nursing career goal?
To become specialised in a field, with hopefully a masters degree.
Do you yet have a memorable / poignant / story from your time working/studying as a nurse?
There's been many patients that have inspired me to be a better person, and as a professional you get a real eye opener to the world.
