Universities may close nursing courses, warn academics


Perhaps we should dig into the archives and find the old School of Nursing curricula. It will take time to recreate the hospital based training but would it be all bad? Let's not dismiss this out of hand but take the opportunity to look at the good from all areas and put together a training and career structure that encourages the right people into the profession. Let's get rid of the need for literacy and numeracy courses as part of nursing education - they should be pre-requisite to acceptance!
