Soooo I thought it would be a good idea to compile a list of all of the different nursing roles that I have heard of or come across in my short period in the NHS (and private sector) so far. This can cover different specialities and areas of work. It’s going to focus primarily on adult nursing roles, because that’s what I know best, but if at any point I write more about the role in another blog post I’ll link them to the list.
It’s definitely not going to be comprehensive as new roles are evolving and being created all the time to match the ever growing need of patients.
