You will hear the phrase “you must act professionally” many times as you enter into your nursing training, but what does it really mean?

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. It might be a day of romance for many, filled with hearts and flowers and a little bit of intrigue, but I am not sure the government has got any sense of how to make nursing more attractive.
Nursing Times Events: Events that make a difference
Here at Nursing Times, we know how hard you work and want to try our best to reward you for everything you do.
In a bid to do so, we run a series of awards, conferences and careers fairs throughout the year with the goals of celebrating nursing achievements, helping you discover new opportunities and equipping you with the tools you need to excel at your jobs and drive you where you want to go.
