Nurse Jobs Ireland assured students seeking to acquire their dream job domestically, at DCU Nurse Fair last Wednesday, according to a report by the job recruiters.
Nurse Jobs Ireland Recruiters provided third year students in particular with key information regarding career opportunities and employers’ expectations, assuring students that their dream job exists in Ireland despite concern of the contrary.
The job recruiters wish in addition to change the media’s negative perception of the nursing career, claiming that all nurses “love their jobs” and that “they’d just like more support, appreciation and pay”.
The less than satisfactory working conditions in Ireland are obscured by claims that peer recommendations rise above the question of security, fairness, and opportunity in the workplace.
“Celebrating the good is important. Bad stories tend to make the news. More positive press may help balance students perceptions working as a nurse in Ireland,” the report said.
Student opinion, on the other hand, indicates that working overseas provides flexibility, training opportunities, proportional wage, and better support and equipment than the Irish counterpart.
The opportunities and perks offered by employers as well as peer recommendations are further deemed to have a significant impact on the students’ future workplace.
Students from disciplines such as Intellectual Disabilities and Psychiatry & General Nursing explained, to the dismay of the company, their plans to emigrate after graduating. Mature students with family ties in Ireland and international students, however, plan to stay.
The annual DCU Nurse Fair provides aspiring nurses with information concerning career opportunities in Ireland and how students should go about applying for said opportunities. An array of information is available at stands and talks featuring representatives from job recruiters and hospitals, such as CCM Recruitment, Praxis Care, and St. Andrew’s Hospital.
Among others at the event in addition to the above include the organisations CPL Healthcare, Nurse on Call, TTM Health Care, Tour World Recruitment, and E R & M, as well as the hospitals and partners St Joseph’s Intellectual Disability Service, St Michael’s House, Beaumont Hospital, Dublin North City Mental Health Services, and St. Vincent’s Hospital Fairview.
