More blogs from student nurses
While training to be a nurse is everything you would imagine it to be – draining, exhausting and challenging – it has quite possibly been the best three years of my life.

Loss of DH nursing advisory unit strongly criticised
At a time when care of the elderly with complex needs is of great importance, it is foolhardy indeed to leave guidance to doctors who are "cavalry to the rescue" types usually with remarkably little knowledge or influence in implementing preventative measures in residential care but, worryingly, plenty of experience in euthanasia.
The too frequent occurrence of sepsis, especially pressure sores, in elderly people in care illustrates that the Conservative government are obscenely negligent in caring for our vulnerable elderly people and the opposition parties are too weak in defending them - although we are the 6th richest nation in the world.
There will be more problems with nurse retention, plus the ramifications of that, and no amount of reduction in taxes (carrots for the donkeys) will compensate for the foul discomfort we will experience when the public realise, as they are beginning to, just how sordid the situation is.
It makes sense to have more workers at the coal face and fewer bosses but it is the influence of doctors and pharmaceutical companies that needs to be curbed and the influence of nurses that needs to be increased.
