  • Comment on: 'We need a strong leader now more than ever'

    PDave Angel's comment 31 May, 2018 5:32 pm

    You all said this 4 years ago when I first came here!

    You need a strong leader but the trusts do not answer to the Chief Nursing Officer. They can make as many cuts as they wish and what can Jane Cummings or her replacement can do?
    What does the Chief Nursing Officer do? What is her everyday role? Is it to lead nursing? Is it to agree to government policy? Was she consulted on removing burseries and did she give her approval?

    Need to know what the role actually is and how much power it actually has.

    Imagine your first delivery!
    You will always remember your very first one as a registered midwife and it will be brilliant!

    You will be a wonderful midwife.

  • Comment on: 'I'm just a care home nurse'

    You missed something here:
    So, I’m not ‘just a care home nurse’: I am an intuitive, skilled, insightful nurse. I am skilled, I have longevity in my relationships and knowledge
    and insight into the needs of those in my care.
    And that is: You are absolutely amazing!

  • Comment on: 'Plans to remove holiday from nurses are completely disrespectful'

    PDave Angel's comment 17 March, 2018 6:18 pm

    When I came here about 2 or 3 years ago nurses said exactly the same thing; that they should strike, march and fight for more money and they are powerless and vulnerable. The governent attacks you because the public don't know what nursing is and how highly skilled and how stressed you are.
    Nursing is a mix of:
    Science,Compassion,Intuition and love

    Nursing needs its profile raising in the country, how about public demonstrations, explain what you do and how hard nursing is.
