Thousands more nursing associates and nurses to train each year, pledges Hunt


So we are going back to the 'in service' training of old. There was nothing wrong with that, to insist on every new nurse to be a graduate is insane. Unfortunately this has resulted in care standards and available staff on the wards to be dropped. There would have been nothing wrong with having ward trained RGNs and degree nurses working together but this ridiculous idea that everyone needs to go to uni has destroyed what was good care. I am not saying that uni nurses are no good but not everyone wants to go to uni. It's the NHS that has lost out. And now to taking the bursaries away is a disgrace.
