Fed up with being an overworked and underpaid NHS nurse?
Tuesday, January 5th, 2016 | Nursing
Almost daily, new reports are revealing the harsh reality of life as an NHS nurse. And unfortunately, it is becoming more apparent than ever that this includes long hours, low pay and a lot of stress.
Not enough beds is leading to overcrowded wards. Not enough staff is leading to excessive shifts and longer hours. The two together is causing nurses within the NHS a real headache, and many are beginning to question whether the high stress levels and lack of rest is worth the money.
On average a Registered Nurse will earn £23,038, including bonuses, working for the NHS; equating to just £12 an hour. After years at university and continual personal development training, twinned with unsociable shifts and difficult working environments, this is not a huge amount - especially when there are other nurses outside the NHS earning upwards of £30,000 a year for doing the same job.
But it’s not as difficult as you may think to unlock this earning potential, regain a work/life balance and rid yourself of a stressful work environment – come and work with Kare Plus!
Many nurses are turning to us not only to pick up extra bank shifts, but many are also beginning to join Kare Plus as full time agency nurses.
With such a shortage of nursing staff, many hospitals, care homes and healthcare centres are turning to us to fill the gaps in their workforce; meaning the guarantee of supplying the hours you need is becoming increasingly likely. Therefore meaning the potential to work full time hours at a greater rate of pay is now a reality.
On top of this, you can tell us what shifts suit you. Maybe you have commitments every Wednesday morning and Friday afternoon. That’s fine. We have shifts available 24/7, so we can find shifts that suit your needs.
And finally, you will work in various locations, not only meaning no two days are the same, but also allowing you to choose your favourite settings and work where best suits you.
If all this sounds better than unsociable hours, long shifts and stressful days, then give your local Kare Plus branch a call on 0333 000 2022 to find out more about changing your working life forever.
