Our Student Nurses

If you're a Student Nurse, you'll likely be aware that two of the biggest challenges that Student Nurses face today are getting practical experience alongside paying their bills while at university. It’s therefore unsurprising that many student nurses choose to work as a Healthcare Assistant, so they can ‘earn while they learn’.

Emma Brown, a Student Nurse from our Kirkcaldy Branch, describes why she chose to work with Newcross during her studies...

“I decided to work for Newcross as a Student Nurse, as it allows me to choose when I want to work and fits around my placement.I was only contracted to one shift a week, but I can work more if I want to!

"I’ve also developed my personal care and communication skills and my role has allowed me to work with individuals with dementia. I now have experience in learning how to cope with service users with learning disabilities in supported living and palliative care. I'd definitely recommend working for Newcross”
