UKIP moots return of enrolled nurse and end to graduate training


Isn't this sad that the leader of now one of the biggest political parties doesn't realise that this is already in place?? It is just under a a new job title - Assistant Practitioners. I am in this training post at present within a District Nursing Team, and the feedback from the team is that our role is very much needed. The academic side is at Level 5 (same level as Diploma nurses). Our position is also very clinically based, and this helps offload the caseload and number of patients for our qualified nurses to let us all do the job we love - to be able to spend the adequate time with our patients that they so deserve.
