Last week David Cameron announced that newly qualified nurses acting as “care makers” will go into hospitals and care homes to help promote nursing values. The voluntary role builds on the success of the “games makers” at last year’s London Olympics, who volunteered to make sure the games ran smoothly.
They will act as role models and ambassadors for the professional values set out in the new nursing strategy, Compassion in Nursing, which was published at the end of last year.
The story produced a large number of negative responses on our website which raised the issue of whether experienced nurses learn from junior staff?
