Nurses are the backbone of the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS). Despite a huge push for more nurses, and increased government funding, we don’t have enough. Quite apart from the recent global pandemic, pre-existing factors such as our rapidly growing population, plus a marked improvement in the health of our elderly, ensure that demand will always outstrip supply.
Our outstanding Introduction to Nursing course gives you a great insight to the work nurses carry out (it’s not all ER and Holby City), and what you can expect throughout your training and further career.
The materials cover the history and development of nursing, and what constitutes the currently accepted nursing “process”. They also explain the way the health service works, what legislation applies in various areas, and what limitations there are with regard to budgetary and logistical constraints – i.e., where only large injections of capital or the purchase of assets (e.g., an MRI scanner), or even relocation, might significantly improve the environment you’re working in.
You will also learn about the “ABCs” of the medical profession, clinical observations. These underpin all processes and procedures carried out by medical professionals, whether on the ward, in a hostile environment (such as a war zone) or attending a road accident with an air ambulance. Safe practices are also covered in some detail.
Finally, you’ll learn all about infection prevention and control. Although it’s only an introductory course, it deals with a lot of situations and scenarios you are likely to meet in nursing.
