Nursing associates ‘not substitutes’ for nurses, warn unions


Nursing is not just a just a job where you get up and decide l am going to be a nurse, nurse have gone to university to study 3yrs on the course and the gorvenment wants a short cut because of the shortage of nurses.I think the gorvenment is undermining the abilities for current qualified nurses.Those who want to be nurses should go and study the degree which is required archivement for one to be registered as a nurse , there is a reason for that.There should be no short cuts in nursing , send healthcare assistants to university for three years so they can practice, and continue finding nursing courses to have more nurses .
