UKIP moots return of enrolled nurse and end to graduate training


There is no need to reintroduce SENs. It is perfectly possible for trusts already to employ Band 4s with foundation degrees to deliver protocol-based care. My former trust did this in learning disabilities and mental health services. Band 3 HCAs with NVQ Level 3 studied for the foundation degrees part-time, with one day a week at the local university.
