Far from it. It’s where your clinical skills will be tested, valued and invested in through courses such as wound management, venepuncture and end of life care. And as part of a close-knit, multi-disciplinary team, our supportive culture means you’ll learn on the job too.
You’ll be surprised. Caring for people comes naturally to you, but we understand that our nurses care about their career growth too. As well as expert clinical training and revalidation support, we offer management courses and opportunities, with scope to progress.
It’s not a place to sit back and relax. Don’t worry, there’ll be time to get to know residents, and understand their clinical needs. But whilst 'fast paced’ isn’t always associated with care homes, there’ll never be a dull moment. With us, our nurses thrive.

Bupa Care Homes are places where you’re given responsibility to make clinical decisions that improve our residents’ quality of life. And sometimes that means care plans that include visits from Elvis or Zooms with celebrities.
Our residents present with a wide range of complex conditions and rely on our nurses to expertly manage their care. But it’s about more than their clinical needs - you’ll get to know and understand your residents as people too. As you’ll know what makes them tick, your care will have greater continuity and a deeper understanding behind it. You really will become part of the family. So, when we say that our nurses care for our residents, we really mean it.
As a qualified nurse with a valid NMC PIN, you’ll be eager to grow your skills - and use them to develop other people’s. It also goes without saying that you’ll have a passion for caring about people, really getting to know their needs, and improving their lives.
Able to build a rapport with ease, you’ll also know how to engage with people from all kinds of medical disciplines. And you’ll understand the power a simple chat has to make a resident’s day, put families at ease, and inspire your colleagues.
The work will be challenging. But also, incredibly rewarding. And, alongside the personal rewards
you’ll get from knowing you’re making a real difference to someone’s life, you’ll receive some tangible benefits from Bupa too. These include:
