Im sorry to hear about your father but you cannot generalise every NQ by your experince.
Plus id like to say that many nurses that are passing the course have an excellent knowledge and skills base, possibly greater that the 'older' nursing population. We can all criticise each other but in a profession where we work together it isnt productive!

Judging by the abilities of newly trained nurses, maybe the time would be better spent on teaching the basics of nursing and nursing care that seem so sadly lacking today.
such a poor comment and it shows what kind of attitude you have to possible future colleagues. Im about to be a newly qualified and luckily enough comments like this do no effect. However if i was going to begin work on your unit i wouldnt be too confident having to work with you. As a newly qualified i believe we are still on a huge learning curse which needs to be aided by yourself and not be criticised for what we might not know. I bet you dont even know everything that you are supposed to!
why not nurses from UK?
Maybe not just students views but the views of other professionals who have been working in the acute setting for years. At some point in their career it is highly likely that they are going to get a child/adult within the hospital setting who has a learning disability. I would like to know how they met the service user's needs and if they were able to. I believe there needs to be more RNLD's within general hospitals to raise awareness of the needs of people with learning disabilities.
