Nurse training needs 'urgent reform', says primary care chief inspector


The chief inspector has noticed that nurses need more training. This overworked, poorly paid nurse here noticed that a majority of nurses know their stuff, but need more updates and study days within contracted working time. This nurse here noticed that because there is massive understaffing, nurses who know their stuff have to give watered down care so twelve patients can stay alive instead of one with good quality care. The nurses are aware that the care is watered down and this makes them very sad and stressed. It actually hurts real bad, but no one is listening. This makes the nurses even more sad and stressed. To make a name for themselves someone who is earning much more than the underpaid nurses keeps coming up with 'new' ideas and what they think is the problem with nursing, without any talk about putting on more staff. This then keep the nurses is a continual state of fustration. Has anyone wondered why nurses are leaving, not staying, having to get nurses from abroad. Why our youths don't say they are interested in nursing. Will staffing be improved a little nearer an election? Why is nursing always used as a political toy?
