The meltdown of the Royal College of Nursing last year was “traumatising” but has opened the door for a “rebirth” of the organisation, its new president has told Nursing Times.

Being a student nurse is tough and the academic pressures can really build up if you are not organised and proactive.

Common weight loss methods' effectiveness 'inconclusive'
I have no idea what the formal evidence for weight-loss methods is.
But personally, when I was about 44 I decided I was too heavy, and my mum was also too heavy. We both decided to lose some weight, and I simply stopped eating things like the pastry on pies, crisps, biscuits, etc. Essentially I stopped eating anything which would be fattening, but I didn't 'really like' - so I kept the cheese sandwiches and glass of beer, as I did really like those. I went from about 13-4 to 11-10 over about 15 or 18 months, and my mum lost about 10 lbs (which improved her health for a while).
But I do eat biscuits, etc, now, and I use the 'how tight is the belt' method - and I'm probably about 12 - 0 to 12 - 4. I'm now in my mid-to-late 50s, so most of the weight I lost, stayed off.
You need motivation to lose weight, and you need to 'permanently' change your behaviour towards food, in my view, to be successful with long-term weight loss. And I'm not bothered that I am perhaps 8lbs heavier than I was at my lightest - I have no intention of being obsessed about my weight !
