When you hear someone say they work at a hospital, or they have a relative who does, you simply think only of hospital nurses. Those blue frocked angels who float around the wards administering comfort and checking for vital signs of life. . . . Of course, as with all modern careers, there are thousands of other things that require a lot of training to fulfill the role but without becoming a nurse. The care industry is massive these days – it’s one of the biggest service industries now and every single job within it requires some sort of training course. Moving and handling of people. That doesn’t sound overly exciting but it is one of the most important for anyone who works as a carer with old and/or vulnerable people. Knowing the rules within a work place is essential and to carry out the tasks satisfactorily, with a great emphasis on caring for the patient/resident is a finely balanced line. Getting the correct training before you go for appl will tell you whether you are suited to your choice of career or whether perhaps you could vary the theme but still remain within the disciplines.
