FAQs about being a Staff Nurse

  • Do you need qualifications to be a staff nurse?

    To work as a nurse, you need a degree in nursing and must be registered with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC)

    The average salary for a staff nurse working within the NHS is £25,000. Privately, staff nurses can earn between £22 to £28 per hour.
