Practical Nurse

Vocational Qualification in Social and Health Care

As a caregiver, students are to help and support the patient in everyday situations encompassing interpersonal relationships, encountering children, adolescents, adults and the elderly. Skills are needed to work both independently and as a member of a multi-professional team. In the nursing profession, students need knowledge and skills to promote growth and inclusion, as well as health, safety and well-being.

As a nurse practitioner, students may work in health and medical care, elderly care, mental health and substance abuse units, day care centers, home care, or disability services. The most important element in being a caregiver is the genuine encounter and being present for the needs of the client.
