    Hi,

     

    Does anybody know if its worth me doing a cert in healthcare or health science before I go? I want to work as an HCA or their equivalent with a view to later training as an enrolled nurse.

     

    I've got experience as an HCA with the NHS but no NVQ. Im hoping my experience and good reference will make it easier to get work.

     

    Any ideas?

    to be honest id wait and do your cert three when you get here. Most work for carers is is aged care though some hospitals do employ them. Most work done by hcas is done by enrolled nurses over here in hospital. Enrolled nursing will take you 12 months, a friend of mine did it combined with her cert 3 so could work as a carer after 3 months, hope that helps
