    "Band 2 nursing assistant"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Health Care Support Worker in Truro, VA

    I worked at NHS

    Pros

    For the training and discipline. Because I enjoy learning and helping people enjoy a better quality of life. I also volunteer for Roswyth in Newquay, caring for people with mental health issues.

    Cons

    I applied for band 2 nursing assistant (temporary staffing). I had six weeks of training to do. The training was in Redruth, Bodmin and Truro. I do not have a car and was finding it very difficult to afford to be able to get to these places. I therefore could not complete my training. I would have loved more than anything to have been able to succeed. I also didn't have a computer and was doing alot of the courses at the library. I now have a computer and would welcome any challenges to put myself back on my chosen employment path..caring. Sadly I was employed by NHS but I actually did not start work. My previous employment to this ended in 2012 when I was a flexable support worker in mental health and learning disabilities. I gave up this employment to move to Newquay with a partner of whom I am no longer with.

    I worked at NHS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    some staff and patients help you get through the day by being ok.

    Cons

    rotating days / nights / weekends. You will have to deal with highly abusive patients, cleaning up human waste, and changing from day shifts to nights shifts with one day off inbetween. A lot of profoundly miserable and burned out staff. Very few patients will ever get better. shifts are destructive to physical and mental health. you can advance but you have to sell your soul to be a manager in the NHS.
