There has been a recent study of nurse numbers being low (ran by the BBC) which really connects to us and the sparsity we see in nurse recruitment. We notice the shortage especially in nurse practitioners, and so we took the time to think about why wouldn’t you be a nurse practitioner?
With nurse training being a possibility we want to reveal why you should be a nurse practitioner:
1. Open doors to new opportunities: An advanced education will not only open the door to countless new job opportunities, but will also provide you with the knowledge and experience necessary to provide high-quality healthcare services in a range of specialty areas to those in your community and beyond.
2. Professional longevity: Nurse Practitioners will play a vital role in the expansion of healthcare services in the future, as they can understand the same things a GP does, but will be more in demand. Therefore they can provide high-quality care and also be cost-efficient in healthcare.
3. Financial benefit: If you have more knowledge, it’s pretty self-explanatory that for another years work you would earn double your money!
4. Personal fulfillment: Furthermore, the more insight you have, the more you are able to help patients in more severe cases. You’ll go to work feeling good, knowing you are performing a life saving job.
5. Independence: In regards to being a locum Nurse Practitioner, you can work however you want and you do not have to depend on a GP during the working house. NP’s can practice independently
