Can I work during the weekends during the month I am following the training?
It is highly recommended to be in good shape when following this training in the expanded role. Being highly intensive, this training is demanding and asks for a lot concentration and energy. Often, the nurses practice at night the different learned techniques (ex. practice of stitches, otoscopic/ophtalmoscopic exam, abdominal exam...). We also recommend studying during the weekends to get prepared for the final exam.
If you work at the same time that you are following the 4 week training on the expanded role, you will not be at your full potential in one or the other activity. You will also need to plan in readiness of your new work in remote regions and sometimes also relocation.
