hi kez

you check out here or nhs careers website for auxiallry jobs.... now sometimes called hca (health care assistant) or csw (clinical support worker).

if you get a job as an axillary some trusts will second you (pay you at your current salary) to do your training... you usually have to be working for a trust for at least a year but some time s longer as there can be alot of competition for these places....

and at the moment their is a financial crisis within the health centre so many trusts have out their secondments on hold as they cannot afford it.

good luck

Kev,

You do so much already to support and partake in the drugs trials like you do!! I am very aware that you wish to start your nursing in February and I feel that you will acomplish this when you are fit and ready!

I know you are an active viewer of at least three nursing sites and all I say to you is this:

Be yourself and remember why you wish to be a nurse, it is not an easy road and there is much learning to be done! your health and family come first and you need to make sure these are prioroties in your life!

You will get a bursary of approximately £534 pounds per month if you choose the diploma and less for doing the degree. Don't quote me on this as I am not sure as the exact amount

You have a load of net friends here to help you and I advise you if you decide to take up nursing and I hope you do as you have shown both empathy, mature and sensable debate and honesty in your posts both in here and student-nurse and also NurseGateway!!!

I do hope you re-gain your health after being the guinea pig for science and start doing what I think what you will be best at and that is a nurse!

I will talk to you when you feel better and have a great christmas period and you rest and take care Kev!

another way round it have you thought of contacting the open uni to see if you can gain a nursing qualification while you work...... if you earn under 15500 you can qualify for a grant so you dont have to pay anything.

dont know for sure on this as i am unable to do my nurse training due to health problems but am doing a degree through the open uni while i work.

Go to www.open.ac and login

You can only undertake this form of training to be a reg nurse if you are already employed by a trust as a hca and have had one or two years experience, you would also need qualifications to get onto the course minimum of 5 GCSEs or equivelent plus Maths and english.

I have the honest desire to work as a nurse and I will want you to advice me with any program that fits me. I am ready to learn and work at the same time.

Regards



I am very Much Interested In The EDUCATION
Where there a will there is a way. I will start from 0 to My Goal :^:

the nursing schools can give best advice or a college that deals with nursing. You have to look at the type of nursing available (mental health, adult, childre, learning disabilities), find out what is involved and what suits you best and then take the next step. best of luck. karen

THIS IS THE 2ND TIME I HAVE TRIED TO REPLY TO YOUR POST SALLY!!!! Sorry for that the forum goes down for reasons I do not know about or why?

I asked you at what point in your access course did you give up, was it less or more than 12 weeks? I need to know this before I can answer your post!

regards Pure!
