Nurse of 56 years retires from wards


This is so heartwarming to read. I have only been nursing for 28 years; however, have been eagerly looking forward to the day I can retire - thinking about going aged 55! Reading this actually makes me mindful of why I came into nursing, how I once felt about nursing, etc. Reading the other reader’s comments about how despondent she already feels at 2 years qualified enables me to see why I feel keen to retire. It is NOT me; it’s the system and government that have changed so appallingly, that have changed my feelings from those that were once like Jean Colclough’s …… I expected to be like her really, but am 49 years old and things have changed so much I cannot see me doing as she has done. Lovely to feel the old feeling again though :) All the best to her x
