Top nurse urges staff to follow 'moral compass' on poor standards


How do you get to be a "chief nurse" anyway? I was very lucky to get as far as being a Band 7 and there was no way on earth the management of my trust was letting me get any higher after all the time I spent arguing with them over inadequate staffing and the implications for patient care and the health of my colleagues. I also saw what happened to a colleague, a consultant psychiatrist, who argued with management...And a union rep...And...I could go on...Jobs lost, victimisation, over-looked for promotion, sidelined, frozen out... So, how exactly does one become a "chief nurse"?
