Guidelines for “After I Qualified....”

This section is intended to provide anecdotal careers advice

It is aimed at people considering Nursing as a career choice; or for nurses who may be looking for ideas about how to cope with disillusion at the current state of affairs in the NHS; or who may even have been one of the nurses affected by redundancy or the ongoing cost cutting measures.

Each of the authors simply describes what happened to them after they qualified and how they feel about the choices they made and opportunities taken or missed.

This should be written in a fairly informal style. Please see the examples for guidance on typical content and style. If you think you would be interested to provide information about your career for others to read please contact me.
