    non-medical prescribing course

    Yes I've done it and am a practising prescriber. The course is loads of work but I really enjoyed it. Are there any bits in particular you are finding difficult

    Hi there, in the UK it's spelt Paediatric not Pediatric (that's the US spelling) have a look at this, http://www.nhscareers.nhs.uk/details/Default.aspx?Id=78 In the UK the first 18 months is a common foundation program after which you focus on your particular area of nursing, this can be Adult, Children, Mental Health, Learning Disabilities. Here is a little more specific info about Children's nursing http://www.nhscareers.nhs.uk/details/Default.aspx?Id=128 http://www.rcn.org.uk/nursing/becomenurse

    Question about a brain shunt?

    We are unable to offer any medical advise here so I am closing this thread. I am sorry to hear your Aunt isn't feeling so well, she should have been given advise about how to manage her shunt and what signs to look for by her doctors. She needs to have the discussion with her neuro team ASAP about her symptoms and if they feel the shunt is involved.

    They can do but in the current climate it's extremely unlikely to happen, I've only ever seen this happen once in 25 years

    nmc sub part 1 or 2?

    Sub part 2 adult will be the enrolled nurse. You are a RN sub part 1

    nmc sub part 1 or 2?

    No you will be registered as RN and your area of practice (adult, child, mental health etc) Level 2 used to be the old enrolled nurse part of the register but I think we are all classed as registered nurses now.
