The meltdown of the Royal College of Nursing last year was “traumatising” but has opened the door for a “rebirth” of the organisation, its new president has told Nursing Times.

Could we learn something from the US about nursing excellence?
Most of my nursing practice (last 25 years) was in the States where I did my degree nursing. My previous employment was with one of the first hospitals to achieve Magnet status (University of Colorado). I agree with this article, there is a deciding difference between nursing here and there, not the knowledge and skills but the attitude, the support and the overall professionalism of the art and science of nursing. Nursing is held at a higher standard with the public and the nurses in the US are 'empowered' to excel, are confident in their roles and are 'nurse led' not the handmaiden of the doctor. We all own stethoscopes and use them. We assess, plan, implement and evaluate. We do all the physical care but also are the leaders in discharge planning, prevention and well being. We are pro active, we sit alongside the medical team, partners in care and the patient advocate. And it is a working wage that you do not have to do 'extra shifts' just to pay for food. It is a career, not a job! Anything that the UK can do to empower nurses....I am all for it!!!
