People are encouraged to consider a nursing course on the Isle of Jersey

Residents of Jersey were urged to find out more about studying adult nursing without having to leave the island.

Last week the Jersey Minister for Health revealed nearly £ 6million had been spent recruiting nurses – mostly from the UK – to fill posts since 2016 due to staff shortages.

Currently the Nurses unions and states remain in dispute over lower-than-inflation wage increase, while former nurses are also encouraged to resume practice through a training program.

The Department of Health and Community Services – in partnership with the University of Chester – is hosting information sessions to encourage more Islanders to consider a career path.

Information sessions will be held at Peter Crill House on:

  • Monday November 26 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

  • Wednesday November 28 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

  • Thursday December 6 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Information will also be available for courses in mental health nursing, child nursing and midwifery.
