Topic - Nursing as a career

Supersonic - on 23 Jul 2014

Hi all,

I have recently lost a job that I thought I would have been happy in for the rest of my working life, and am at a slight loss as to what to do next.

Before I got this job I had just graduated with a 2:2 in Environmental Conservation, something that I find interesting, but it is not something I wish to pursue as a career. I was working crappy jobs in supermarkets earning enough to eat and climb, wondering what to do with my life.

I was considering going into nursing as people say I'm nice, which apart from being very flattering, I think may ring true?

In losing my current job however, I am now very aware that you must play to your strengths to get the most out of a given job for both you and your employer.

The things I am looking for in a job would be;

Something interesting and dynamic

I'd like to have a rewarding job if possible

But being a passionate climber I am certainly looking for a job that would allow me time to pursue this - just 4 weeks of holiday fills me with dread. I enjoy climbing mid-week but also at weekends. (obviously dont expect to be able to do both in one week)

I would like the possibilty to progress, plus I guess at some point I need to think about pensions and that sort of thing.

I really loved living in North Wales and would like to be able to live there once again if I so wished.

I'd be really interested in hearing any opinions, thoughts, experiences from any nurses that use the site. I'm most interested in A+E nursing I think.

Is it something you'd recommend as a climber?

Is it something you'd recommend full stop?

Any tips?

Basically any thoughts welcome.

Cheers, D
