Worked here 22 years. Secure employment, decent pension, good annual leave days. Overtime a constant, always available due to being understaffed consistantly

You learn lifelong valued skills within healthcare.If you are in the right team it can be very enjoyable to work. Some teams often have clicks especially from the older the staff. If the team is good it makes your day much better

Over stretched team, understaffed and stressful !
Nursing is understaffed and the nurses and teams in nhs as a whole are expected to work under stressful and risky to patient situations. Poor support for same reason and I found there to be a culture of cliques and favouritism. The job is a reliable source of income but nhs has changed due to all the cut backs affecting patient experience and resulting in low morale at work with little job satisfaction.

Can be fun
Difficult job but rewarding. Sometimes work can be very fast paced and overwhelming, sometimes it can be very quiet. People are willing to help you and most shifts are great.

Almost every day is exhausting, I felt like I was burnt out all the time. I personally had minimal support and often hated reaching work in the morning.
