Click on the image and watch a video featuring Leanne Roberts, a trainee in Devon and Exeter, who talks about what she wants to get out of training to become a nursing associate.
Leanne is one of dozens of trainees that have started the exciting new training programme in hospitals and care homes across Devon.
I am expecting to get a wide range of skills, to get a lot of on-the-job training, meet lots of people, get my qualifications so I can still do my nursing.
I've always been a people person and enjoying looking after patients and getting to know them. I also really like the clinical side, so when I learn a new skill I get ridiculously excited about it!
Leanne Roberts, trainee Nursing Associate in Devon.
In December last year I received the most exciting news of my career. From 30 January 2017 I would be starting in my new role as a nursing associate! I have previous care-based experience of working in children’s services but as a nursing associate. I’ll be able to branch out into other areas, equip myself with wider experience and further my skill set. The nursing associate role is everything I had been waiting for. It’s a role I truly believe in and it really makes me feel as though I’m on the right path and progressing in my career.
