I would really like to become an Auxiliary Nurse, and have looked it up on the internet.

I have beeen told that i need to recieve an NVQ level 2, but in what subject, or does that not matter??

Any help on how people did it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Hello Sarah and welcome to Nurserve

Auxililiay nurse has now been replaced with the title healthcare assistant and getting started is hard as most care homes, bank work with a hospital like people who have some experience, it is just finding an employer that will be prepared to take you on from scratch.

You can work towards your NVQ's on the job and your employer usually actively encourage you to do this with them.

Another way is to do an access to nursing course, contact your local colleges and universities to find out who offers this in your area. If you complete and pass the access course then this can get you into uni to train to be a nurse

Failing this then you could offer yourself as a volunteer and this in turn could lead to a job offer.

Good luck.
