I was one of lucky ones having just graduated as a mature student nurse. On my course we lost most nurses when placements started. Such a shame as many would have made great nurses. A physically and academically challenging course as well as the financial hardship involved I only see situation getting worse. It will be interesting to see how attrition rates are affected.
This government has done so much damage to staff morale and already, as I start out on my career I feel undervalued.
