Nursing in the United Kingdom has had long history.  The current form of nursing is often considered as beginning with Florence Nightingale who pioneered “modern nursing”.  Nightingale initiated formal schools of nursing in the United Kingdom in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  The role and perception of nursing has dramatically changed over the years and now Nurses are seen as professionals in their own right.

There are over 300,000 nurses in the United Kingdom and they work in a variety of settings, such as hospitalshealth centresnursing homeshospices, communities, and within academia.

Currently there are not enough Nurses in the NHS and private sectors in the UK.  There are a few contributing factors causing this large shortfall in the second fastest growing occupation.  Making finding and matching suitable candidates a challenge but one we are dedicated to and are expert at.
