A friend of mine has recently been sent a leaflet asking if she would like to join the TA as a student nurse. Sheâs asked me to help find out a bit about what you do, and as I know very little about army nurses (other than you patch up booboos and Iâd like to play doctors and nurses with some of you) I thought Iâd try and get some info on ARRSE. Her closest medic unit is 205(Scottish) Field Hospital (V) so Iâd be particularly interested in hearing from anyone in that unit. Here are her questions: Sheâs currently working in a hospital as a child health care nurse, would the TA be able to make use of her current skills? Sheâs currently reading for a degree in BN child health nursing. Would this degree be of any value to the TA? How much time does a TA nurse have to commit (I assume 27 days like the rest of us??) and what exactly do you do on drill nights and weekends? What trades are available for her (this is where you can tell I know nothing about nursing) and what does the training involve? Iâve noticed that 205 Field Hospital seam to be located in both Edinburgh and Dundee, both locations are suitable for her. Is there any difference between the two of you in terms of what you do? Iâve also noticed that 225 (Highland) Field Ambulance (V) is located in Dundee, what does your role involve?
