Nursing Pin

i was a SEN left nursing in 1986 but back caring for the EMI do i still need to get an NVQ2/3?

past my SEN in 1974 nursed in general hospitol for many years left nursing in 1986 took a public house . now back into nursing (did not keep my SEN PIN going) Work as a carer in a EMI care (private) home. They are now saying i need my NVQ2/3 to become a senior carer.Any advice please

Yes, I was also an SEN qualified in the 1980's. I too let my PIN lapse.

Just before I left, about 10 years ago, they introduced the concept of Continual learning. As a result you had to continue taking courses and keeping yourself up to date and to actually maintain your registration you had to work a minimum of hours in a ward environment to prove you were up to date with new procedures and methods etc.

I too am now a carer in the Community and have been asked recently if I would like to take my Senior Carer NVQ3. I too questioned this...

The way it was explained to me is that regardless of what you once did, as you allowed your registration to lapse, you have not kept up to date with caring and how the procedures have changed. Therefore there is no short cut and you too will have to take the additional NVQ to make the grade.....

I consoled myself with the knowledge that I should have the upper hand as I have met all the anatomy and basic nursing care before !!!!!

Good Luck with your NVQ Hun
