THE BIG QUESTION
The big question: do people still believe nurses with degrees are too posh to wash?
The interim findings of the Willis Commission on Nursing Education has found “no evidence to support the view that graduate nurses are too posh to wash”.
The commission, which was set up by the Royal College of Nursing, said the move to degree-level registration of “all nurses in the UK does not appear to affect their ability or desire to care with compassion as well as expertise”.
The findings were based on a review of recent research, written submissions to the commission and three days of interviews with expert witnesses.
Does this evidence mean that we are now likely to see an end to the “too posh to wash” label for nurses with degrees? What do you think?
