UKIP moots return of enrolled nurse and end to graduate training


The SEN role was abused in the past as they were often used as staff nurses but on a lower salary. They had no career pathway beyond their SEN level. Health care assistants can now prepare for pre-registration course by taking NVQ level 3. Nurse education does not take place in a university lecture theatre alone, there is a 50% practice requirement. It is worrying that a prospective MP/heath spokesperson is ignorant of the developments which have made career opportunities a reality for previously disadvantaged staff & is ignorant of the process of nurse education. This statement panders to & attempts to reinforce the prejudices which the general public may have of nursing. But that's the UKIP way.
