I would urge colleagues to remember that "strike" action need not involve a withdrawal of labour.
A work to rule for example, would be very effective --
For more ideas check the tactics of our Australian colleagues who mounted a successful "strike" which won not only a pay award but an acceptance of minimum staffing levels
Comment on: Nurse apprenticeships to begin in September 2017
The general public has never understood or supported degree qualified professional Nurses.
In turn the "profession" and its "leadership" has failed to explain the value of an adequately resourced, educated nurse workforce in terms of demonstrably better outcomes.
The public will now get what it wants !
Those nurses who wish to remain part of a profession should quickly examine their options and emigrate to a country which values and supports its Professional Nurse workforce. Remaining in the UK is not an option.
At a rate of 5 "new" nurses/month it will take a long time to recruit 500 and that assumes a 100% retention rate .
Those who doubt the potential harm that a "clique" of midwives can cause should read the Morcombe Bay report.
"managers" who tolerate "cliques" should be removed.
Comment on: 'Which elective placement should I choose?'
A/E, Intensive Care, Oncology, and Neurology all offer very different "learning experiences"
