  1. Good morning, I am a third year mature nursing student(Nottingham University), that has become disilusioned with what nursing is all about, I want to be able to make a difference to peoples lives, not just see them as part of a process. I have experience in fostering children who come from a domestically violent background, am used to reports, how social service, and social workers are organised, and would like the opportunity to apply for this role.I am computer literate and live in Derby.
    Kind Regards
