Jobs in London -Working as a nurse in London

Nursing is a profession within the healthcare sector centred on the caring of individuals, families, and communities, to enable them attain, maintain, or recover optimal health and quality of life.
Nurses may be differentiated from other health care providers by their approach to patient care, training, and scope of practice. Nurses practice in a wide diversity of practice areas, with a different scope of practice and level of prescriber authority in each. Many nurses provide care within the ordering scope of physicians, and this traditional role has come to shape the historic public image of nurses as care providers. However, nurses are permitted by most jurisdictions to practice independently in a variety of settings, depending on training level.

Nearly 400,000 nurses in the United Kingdom work for the National Health Services (NHS). To practice, all nurses must be registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
The core function of the NMC is to establish and improve standards of nursing and midwifery care in order to serve and protect the public. Some of the key duties of the Nursing and Midwifery Council include: registering all nurses and midwives and ensure that they are properly qualified and competent to work in the UK; sets standards of training and conduct; establishes the standards for pre-registration nursing education; ensures that those in the profession keep their skills up to date; provides a framework to protect practicing nurses and midwives.

If you are a nurse or midwife, London offers a great opportunity for you to exercise your profession in a highly rewarding manner. You can choose to work as a nurse in the national health service (NHS); practice in one of the many private hospitals and clinics in the city; offer your precious services in a caring home or take up a special contract to carry out a variety of caring activities. Whatever your preferred nursing job, you are bound to find it in London. It would be right to assert that London has the highest number of practicing nurses in the UK; and you can become part of the professional and caring team of London’s nurses.  Remember that to take up a nursing job in London and the UK in a legitimate manner, you need to hold valid registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. The title "registered nurse" can only be granted to those holding such registration; as laid down in the Nurses, Midwives and Health Visitors Act 1997. Wish you the best in finding a nursing job in London.
