UKIP moots return of enrolled nurse and end to graduate training

Comment

As a second year student nurse on the degree program I do not agree. Our course is still 50% practice, therefore we spend 50% of our time out there on the wards. Some things need to be taught in a classroom, such as important policies and legislation that arise due to the poor nursing care this article talks about, which came about before nursing became graduate only... A&P is also best taught in the classroom. Yes practice is very important, and while this is where I learn the most about nursing the classroom builds some foundations. Let's not also forget the doors that are opening to nurses due to them being graduates.
