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 have to agree with all the preceeding comments. Why is it always 'nursing' jobs that are under threat? In both primary and secondary care nurses are already struggling to cope with an ever increasing workload.
In primary care the number of managers and administrators seem to far outweigh the number of nurses, especially since there has been duplication of manager roles in both provider and commissioner branches!!!!! In addition these 'managers', some of whom are paid obscene amounts of money to do the job, then spend millions hiring 'consultancy firms' to do the job for them! And from personal experience reports from these consultations achieve very little as they are ignored; mainly because they only reiterate what the managers were told initially by nurses who do the actual job!!
What has happened to the concept of 'patient' focused care delivery so hyped by recent government big guns? Nurses are a huge provider of that 'patient care' -surely to cut nursing jobs would seriously jeopardize this objective?
I would be very interested to know how many more managers there are now in the NHS than in 1997 when Labour came to power with their promise to cut down on bureaucracy in the NHS. Maybe Nursing Times could make this their next fact finding project.
