In these more enlightened times, the word Nurse means a great deal more than in the older days of just emptying bed pans bringing round trays of food. Nursing is now considered a seriously good long term career for absolutely anybody. No longer the preserve of the young lady with shapely legs! As we have seen on various tv programmes, nurses come from all backgrounds. Each type of nursing career can be bolstered with e-learning and dedicated nurse focused online courses. The NHS has a fantastic website dedicated to encouraging anyone who is thinking about nursing. It shows quite clearly how to find out what kinds of nursing there are. The choices are massive – adult, children’s, district, general practice, learning disability. The list includes specialities which are worked towards after initial training and a period general nursing. All of these roles will be rewarding and dedicated online training courses are taken as part of the course on a mandatory basis.
