Supporting staff nurses to train as community specialist district nurse practitioners


I think it is ridiculous to read that district nurses has been removed from the list of the NMC specialist nurses. The health visitors, school nurse and the district nurse, all went through the same rigorous specialist course pathway. In fact the skills and knowledge pathway of district nurses is more broad than that of their schhool nurse and health vistor colleague. Doest anyone know the reason why the district nurses have been removed
