Call for ‘revalidation to be funded by government, not nurses’


I have always felt that the role of the NMC is to set and uphold nursing practice standards, in order to uphold the quality of care.Such a service is surely meant mainly to benefit and protect the public against bad practice.I do not think it is fair to make nurses pay for such a service.The government should recover such costs from the tax payer.In any case nurses pay tax too. Nurses should be made to pay on the basis that they also benefit from the NHS like everybody else,and not because of their profession.
