This would not incentivise me to do bank. Why getting paid quickly or losing funds from my pension is attractive is a mystery to me. Perhaps the Government should stop wasting funds on IT and pump it into wages.
I do agree with this despite my love for the NHS. As an entity it has to attract new students in. The current situation isn’t all that attractive so it’s not surprising that staff turnover is high. We need compassion for staff as well as patients.
Sorry but I totally disagree. We should fight for what's right not put the best spin possible on an awful situation. The taxpayer, including nurses, will pay for the student loan debt which is wiped off so it's bad no matter which way you look at it.
Nursing Associates should be funded to become RNs and we should be paying all students for the time that they work.
Most important of all, Nursing is a profession, not a vocation. The government will continually try to beat us over the head with Florence Nightingale if we let them. She, and nursing, have been framed as angels, the lady with the lamp, the ethereal nurse. It's that attitude, of calling us a vocation, that lets us be treated like dirt because we don't deserve the same rights as other professionals. Nursing needs to remember it's power as the largest voice within the healthcare arena.
It should be noted that King's College London doesn't appear because of the successful NSS boycott organised by KCLSU - however, history suggests that it would have continued to have fared poorly
Recently wrote an article about this for the Student Affairs section. You should definitely do it! There's so many services being transitioned into the Community and there's the same if not more training opportunities for you
Surely this should read: Student Nurses and Midwives to pay £26 an hour to work for the NHS as part of their 'training'. It's always strange how the current and future situation is reframed to be training instead of work…
How can you standardise education if your mentors will now be anybody?
Well when you cut nurses pay on average by about £4 grand are we really surprised they end up having to pay more than that to retain staff? This is the market that neoliberals like the Conservatives think will dictate the cost of things. Well even with their meddling, safe care still costs the same as it ever did
We just need nurses to vote for it now
I voted for this. I will not work in a profession that doesn't fight for itself. Please, my colleagues, stand up and protect yourselves and your patients.
