UKIP moots return of enrolled nurse and end to graduate training


I completely agree with the student - some things need to be learnt in the classroom! I am a student and on my different placements I have seen the same things done differently eg gastrostomy feeds. Yet only once out of 4 placements did they follow the correct guidelines, they had them present and we got taught them in lectures and therefore without this mistakes could be continually passed down the line as it takes a responsible, policy-abiding mentor to teach the correct way, and/or a university! I am just not too sure they have thought about this fully, yes we are short staffed but what about more HCA training? More trained university students? But I still strongly believe that there are aspects of nursing that requires university education, especially for a quality improvement point of view!
