Feedback:I’ve just completed my three days observation of practice nursing. I really enjoyed it. It was so helpful and arranged a very varied three days, observing general appointments and time with the diabetic, family planning and asthma/COPD specialist nurses, and a baby immunisation clinic. I liked the huge variety of work that practice nurses do, and the autonomy but with the support of a great team. Practice nursing is definitely top of my list of career options after this experience. Thank you again for arranging this opportunity.
