The standard workweek for a nurse working in the National Health Services in the United Kingdom is 37.5 hours, as of 2015. Testimonials on the Nursing section of the NHS Careers website indicate that nurses work standard office hours or nights shifts.
A nursing job at the NHS can also be done in a part time or job-sharing basis when a position becomes open. The majority of NHS staff are entitled to 27 annual holiday days in addition to any public and general holidays observed in the United Kingdom. Workers who have at least 10 years of service are entitled to 33 holiday days.
