Comment: 'Bridging the age gap could help to solve the staffing crisis'


I too trained in the 70s but continued to learn and now have a PhD. The SRNs I remember we're highly skilled and not at all equivalent to today's HCAs- my SRN training was, I believe, equal to today's degrees. Many people failed their state finals so please can we stop this idea that it used to be a job for 'practical' people without the desire or ability to study
