Susan's story

I have been working in the community for about six months now and, I have to say, I absolutely love it.

During my training, I really enjoyed the community placement and felt that was the route for me, however after qualifying, I was told it would not be a good idea to go straight into the community, as I would not progress as a nurse or develop my skills.

With that in mind, I decided to work at the hospital, however, having done that and now worked in the community, I can tell you that this simply isn’t the case.

In the hospital I developed skills in general areas but, in the community, I feel my general nursing skills have vastly improved.

I definitely feel that I have made the correct choice in moving to the community and I would definitely recommend it to anyone considering the same option.

Interested in joining the team? 

We have openings for community nurses to join our team at Medway Community Healthcare.

We are looking for people with a passion for caring and an understanding of the importance of treating patients within the community.

After the application stage we will be holding a recruitment day where you will get more information on Medway Community Healthcare and community nursing.
