Hiii!!! How are you all?? I just come on to see if anyone could give me a bit of advice?! Ive just completed 3 years at college doing hairdressing but then decided that wasnt what i would really want to do so i decided on midwifery or nursing...Im currently working in a residential home which i have done for the past 15 months. Although i have taken a year out of studying i have been informed that those who want to become nurses or work in that sort of medical sector can actually work as bank staff in the hospitals as abit of extra training. Is this true?

There will be a bank office in one of your local hospitals probably, just phone the hospital switchboard and ask for the number, but normally where I work they advertise for bank the same as any other job, so might not be swelling the bank numbers at the moment unless they are advertising for bank staff. The process of joining the bank is exactly the same as a full time job, so as well as an application you will be interviewed and if accepted will have to do two or three induction days or mandatory training days before you can actually start work.

Hi Shelbob,


You say that you are working in a residential home is that as a Nursing Assistant/ Health Care Assistant?

You say you have taken a year out of studying what for? as you say you have completed your hairdressing course.

If you want to do your nursing get a job in a hospital as a Nursing Assistant/Health Care Assistant and you should get the chances to do NVQ training. This will all give you a great insight into the world of nursing and help you get a place to do your training.

Bank work will mean that you will work where ever you are needed. You may find it better to find your feet working in one area for a while.

You can still work bank shifts when you start your training to top up the finances!


Wish you lots of luck. Nursing is a great career and can take you all over the world. I have been doing it for many years now and my daughter has just got a place to do her Adult nursing after working as a Health Care Assistant for the last year on a Stroke Rehabilitation ward in a General Hospital. I haven't put her off after all these years!!!


Good Luck
