'Sex in pharmacy' and cover-up claims made by former nursing director

Comment

Anonymous | 27-May-2010 11:01 am, I am the same anonymous above you. I do see your point about IT skills and their can be some allowances made for older Nurses who may not be able to defrag a hard drive or something (we are not IT specialists after all) but everyone should be able to type, even if they have to take their time; the letters on the keys are pretty clear after all. Basics are basics. However, I believe that Nursing is now a profession that is very highly educated and highly skilled. It is not enough any more to simply have a caring nature. Whilst this is still a prerequisite, a certain level of education is needed for this career now and I believe that the basics of good grammar and spelling is the cornerstone of being able to handle the academic side of this career. So therefore, I would say that if some Nurses do struggle with this level of education, then perhaps they would be better off in a career that does not require it. That is all I am saying. If for example they struggle with basics, then more advanced practice will be much more difficult and potentially risky as a result.
