    Absolutely Tink. I spent ages completing the survey and filling up the comments boxes.

    Well said. As one of those who, as student nurse, participated in the 1982 strike (which was effective), the Nursing profession's slide into apathy bothers me too.

    "Who is to comment on a nurses suitability to re validate?"

    Precisely. Which is why it is important to get your tuppence worth in.

    Like I said, I don't have a problem with revalidation per se. Done properly, then the 'manager' (whom I'm sure we all recognise) described so well by Anonymous | 8-Jan-2014 1:44 pm, would find it difficult to be revalidated herself and decent nurses like you guys would correctly be passed as competent. Done wrongly and pointlessly, as I feel it is being done for the medics, it defeats the purpose and could be open to abuse from all sides.

    "I would ask though that they further research why the chocolate munchers feel a need to put empty wrappers back into the chocolate tin so I am left rummaging around a box of empty wrappers."

    They do it to torment you, Tink!

    Before the ritual abuse of the research world begins again, I feel I must draw attention to some very important and worthwhile recent research published in the BMJ:
