Is nursing a low-status profession?


Eileen, Nurses need to find their voice and start using it. Nursing may be seen as low status inside the NHS as they always accept what is thrown at them. Nurses have all the responsibilty for their patients and they know what is happening but are powerless to change anything. Nurses can be very powerful indeed if they started organising and telling the public what is going on. Yes, they have the power to change their status. And they have always had this power. So much has been done to them over the years and they have been attacked again and again that they feel and have become powerless. Nurses must shake this and start campaigning and organising and get a voice. Only they can change their status. They should start rallies in Hyde Park, advertise what is actually happening to the NHS. Nurses should tell the public what they actually do and become their own advocate. They should tell the public through demostrations explaining what they do all around the country then they will get the respect they deserve. I think nurses are amazing LOVE PDaveANGEL
