The Healthcare Support Worker role can be a great start to a nursing career. Many people who start as a HCSW go on to undertake further training and qualifications, including nurse apprenticeships.
You might like to read ‘Shane’s advice’ here on our company page https://www.indeed.co.uk/cmp/Nhs-Healthcare-Support-Workers/about. As a HCSW Shane first completed his NVQ3 in health and social care and other relevant continuous professional development courses. He then went on to be accepted onto a band 4 Training Nursing Associate role at his Trust and, most recently, secured a place on the Trust’s registered nursing degree apprenticeship programme (band 5) and has started university.
