Registered nursing associate working in general practice

Jed Bates.jpegWhat does being a nursing associate mean to you?

‘It means fulfilling the role to the maximum. And releasing registered nurses so that they can care for the more seriously ill.’

What’s been your most rewarding moment as a registered nursing associate? 

‘Giving my presentation at the House of Commons before the pandemic hit was my most rewarding experience! All the rewarding moments during the pandemic seem to have rolled into one, but the resounding one is just being there when an individual needs you the most - especially at the end of life.’

What advice do you have for someone training, or thinking of training, to be a nursing associate? 

‘Just do it - you may never have this opportunity again!  Use every resource available during your training and after you qualify’
