Hi, my name is AntQuotidian!

I trained in the UK as a Registered Mental Health Nurse starting in January 1980. These days I teach chemistry and nutrition but I have been thinking about old times and I am hoping that someone can remember details about the training that I am not certain that I recall correctly. I recall there were four assessments (plus the state exam). There was 'patient care', perhaps a bath or similar care, 'medication' - where we had to correctly dispense medication and know about what we were giving. I think the other two were 'ward management' and 'teaching', pretty sure teaching was one of them. Am I right?

    Hi @AntQuotidian and welcome to the community, how are you?


    This is a very supportive and welcoming site to be a part of so I’m hopeful that you’ll find it to be a positive outlet. Feel free to have a look around and get involved wherever you’d like 😊 I have included below a few of the pages I’d recommend having a look through to get used to things:

    • The virtual coffee lounge which is one of our categories, in which we play games and talk about general subjects such as hobbies and interests
    • The recent discussions page, which shows an overview of everything happening across the community
    • The categories page, which shows a full list of discussion groups on the community

    If you have any questions at all then don’t hesitate to ask.

    Apologies but I'm not sure about the details that you have asked about, but I hope that other members who may have also studied the same or similar course will be able to offer their insight.
