I would like to preface this piece by being clear that I am a cisgender female, and speak as an ally, rather than a member of the transgender community.

Nursing is often described as a vocation; a calling for those who have an innate aptitude for caring.
The last three months since we launched the Nursing Times Awards seem to have flown by and, with summer hopefully just around the corner, suddenly the closing date for entries is looming

A look at what you’ve been talking about on Nursingtimes.net…
“I thought Gordon Brown’s resignation speech was very dignified and from the heart. It was the speech of a true statesman.”
“The question now is: do those on long days have more sick leave than those on short days?”
“Nurse practitioners don’t help our cause one bit. For they do the job of doctors for half the pay… a sure fire way to lose the respect of politicians!”
“Can we really allow people to start picking and choosing what parts of the NMC they want to follow?”
“Nurses are true angels, they are over worked, under paid and by far underappreciated”

The problem is nurses work hard and the management get the credit. Some manager don't do anywork. Also they can choose holiday when they want,
They get big wages and too many management hanging arround doing nothing, should be hand on care not sitting on computer doing paper work. Nursing is albout patient care hand on care.
Unsuitable or offensive?

I couldn't agree more! It appears to me that some nurses give priority to paperwork over patient care also. Hugely frustrating to those that are giving the hands on care, including HCA's. It seems there are two schools of thought on this issue, one that nurses are merely coordinators of patient care and secondly that we should be delivering the care ourselves. Although i don't disagree with proffessionalisation of nurses, surely it is our role to directly give the hands on care and not to delegate it. Afterall the word nurse is a verb!
