Will my years as a nurse count to my GP pension?

I trained as a nurse from 1984 and re-trained as a doctor from 1997 - 2003 (I worked in the NHS as a bank nurse for a year also whilst at uni). I plan to retire at 65 but I am worried that my earnings as a nurse previously will not give me a good pension - could you please advise.
