More blogs from student nurses
While training to be a nurse is everything you would imagine it to be – draining, exhausting and challenging – it has quite possibly been the best three years of my life.

News that financial support for student nurses is back on the agenda will be welcomed by many across the profession. But agenda items don’t necessarily translate into action.

Nurses at risk from job cuts 'bloodbath'
I totally agree with the two above comments, particularly as I am also a Clinical Nurse Specialist with 35 years well earnt experience. While I recognise that we need a management infrastructure to direct us, we also need a fully functioning, knowledgeable and alert nursing force in our hospitals. When management understands that it is the nurses who actually care for the patients 24/7 then they might start to give us the respect we deserve for the compassion, skills and knowledge that we have. When a patient is haemorrhaging we don't stand there and have several meetings to decide the best course of action....we get on with the job at hand! Nursing is a practical, hands-on job that uses the head, heart and hands simultaneously every moment of the working day. Don't throw the baby out with the bath water because if you do, you will have no PROFESSIONAL nurses to wash bottoms and do all of the hard graft - just an empty set of wards with many sets of paper patient care plans flapping in the wind! I expect to be paid well for the work that I do and for the time I have given multiply over the years to study AND working full-time at the same time - to offer top standard nursing care always.
