Nursing Support Workers' Day RCN graphicToday, we are proud to celebrate Nursing Support Workers' Day. We would like to take this opportunity to recognise the invaluable contribution our Healthcare Support Workers (HCSW) make every day supporting our nursing teams, colleagues and patients in our care.

We value our support workers and healthcare assistants working across our organisation in our teams and on our wards for their skills and commitment to patients and service users. The support worker role is also a great foundation for those who want to develop their careers into nursing and other registered professions.

Our Practice Education Team is on hand to provide guidance for the career pathway into nursing, wherever your starting point. We provide guidance on how to build study skills, gain Maths and English qualifications and on the apprenticeship routes that lead to becoming a registered nurse or Allied Health Professional.

The Practice Education Team also provides guidance on how to write an application form that will showcase experience and skills. To help applicants present their experience and qualifications to meet the requirements of the role the team also offers regular workshops in Success with NHS Interviews.
