I was a cadet nurse in the late 60s at the age of 16 to 18. It was fabulous and I learned so much in preparation for my nurse training - what comes around goes around - but this is good !
I totally agree with this. Midwives were stopped from including weighing women as part of an antenatal assessment many years ago. This supported the provision of dietary advice to support a healthy weight gain in pregnancy - we need to start including weighing again at each antenatal visit!
Reminds me of my training days in the clinical rooms at BOLTON school of nursing & midwifery - what comes around, goes around.......
Obviously a 'London' senior nurse - words fail me !!
I must admit, I feel a little uncomfortable with our CEO also holding the position of chairperson of BPAS. It must have been quite a coup for the BPAS. To sign the RCM up to this campaign is wrong without members having at least some knowledge of the stance being taken. We are usually well informed on current issues by the RCM so why not on this ? Could that be because there would not be the level of support for this campaign - and it then makes you think - Are we as well informed as we think?
Agree with everything said by Denise Moyse. Maybe, we who qualified under the old system, trained rather than undertook degree training, recognised the value of the SEN and hope that the associate nurse would again put in place ' the bedside nurse'.
