Have just attended a refresher course on first aid today - Sunday - Yikes
Great course - run by Red Cross
Excellent presenter too
Anyway l was wandering is it an expectation to have first aid for you as a requirement for nursing? (general question here)
All the nursing courses locally ie RN EN certificate 3 etc - in fact almost every course of all subjects such as nursing, hospitality, child care, - anything that relates to a work enviroment type course has an expectation that the person will have a current first aid certifcate (level 2 - workplace) This all ties into the OHS regulations.
So as l asked is it an expectation to have first aid for nursing -
I personally like to keep myself updated - as l am sure that most of us if we are known to be nurses = everyone will ask you your advice - ie the nieghbourhood.
I will say that l will give my thoughts and then say - I would suggest that you see your doctor-
Anyway back to first aid - do you?
