NHS trusts report staff shortages worst in specialist roles

Comment

I'm not sure why people are complaining about degree nurses in this article, if anything most specialist nurses require undergraduate degrees and master degrees. There should be a much larger focus on how difficult it is to climb the clinical ladder in nursing. I've met some very young ward sisters and matrons in my placements, but most CNS's and NPs are above 35. Why is there such a disparity between the ages of management and clinicians?
