Nursery nurses care for young children up to the age of five and, as the title suggests, will be employed primarily in nurseries. Staff will demonstrate a passion for working with young patients and their qualifications and work experience should reflect this.
Qualifications and entry requirements
Education to degree level is not required with GCSEs and some good previous employers usually being enough to obtain a role, coupled with the right attitude and personality.
Recruitment agencies providing nursery nurses will endeavour to find individuals with the aforementioned skill set who will be prepared to work alongside and under the supervision of senior nursery nurses.
Key competencies and salaries
Employment as a nursery nurse can be challenging as one would be expected to assist other staff in providing physical, spiritual and emotional care for young children. It may also be necessary through this type of employment to help children who have been abused, play a significant role of the promotion of public health and help students who are training to become qualified nursery nurses.
A nursery nurse will usually be employed by the NHS but there are also nationwide opportunities in private health care and the community. The lowest paid nursery nurses earn in the region of 12,500 and the highest can expect a wage of approximately 17,500.

Nurseries may want to advertise for candidates with a qualification in paediatric first aid. Although this isn't a legal requirement for job seekers, employers should have staff who are trained in providing first-line medical assistance.
Job seekers should make themselves familiar with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework. The EYFS sets standards for the development of children age 0-5, and all care provided by a Nursery Nurse must be done in line with these standards.
