Keeping on Caring
Posted on 2nd October 2018 at 10:45
Do you know of a nurse looking for a new career or due to retire soon? County Care Berkshire are recruiting for carers and those with a nursing background looking for a new career setting can be a great match for us.
According to a recent study in Australia*, nurses are the least likely to leave their careers to start in an entirely different industry. In all likelihood, if they do leave nursing, they will stay in a career where they can continue to provide care in some way.
For nurses in the UK, there are many vacancies on offer in the NHS at various levels. However, the working hours can be a reason that many leave after having a family or upon approaching retirement. A hospital environment might not suit everyone either, it’s a stressful role and for some it doesn’t provide as much opportunity for helping people as care work does. Nursing is a vocation and as such, the desire to provide care is the overriding reason to choose the profession. However, if the environment in a hospital doesn’t suit, caring in a home environment can offer a very enjoyable alternative.
