More blogs from student nurses
While training to be a nurse is everything you would imagine it to be – draining, exhausting and challenging – it has quite possibly been the best three years of my life.

UKIP moots return of enrolled nurse and end to graduate training
Seems like a very good idea to me, under the old training SEN's were enrolled by the then GNC/UKCC These were people who wanted to nurse were more capable than HCW's but were not interested in being a boss, they wanted to care for people and were pretty good at it. The nearest thing to theses people now are HCA's with level 3 nvq's. Having trained under the old system which did not have the common nursing section, you either trained as a general mental illness or what is now badly named learning difficulties, then added to your basic training as you went along, nurses did not need to be made to do further education in those days, I was teaching, and yes you needed a degree to do this, under the introduction of P2K and the migration to universities. The main difference and the major problem is the size of intakes these days it is difficult to teach in any way other than lectures, it was this aspect that took me back to the wards from the teaching. Therein to traditional training will mean that people who want to nurse, not just get a degree will increase, and the attrition rate after qualification of those not wanting to nurse because it isn't what they thought it was will reduce drastically. There is not now and never has been any rational reason for full graduate nursing in the UK it was forced on to us by the eu.
