Comment on: Search for new NMC chief exec put on hold
OK! so the NMC are flunking it AGAIN! Why should we as Registered Nurses continue to be controlled by this organisation that is only here to protect the public from us? The DoH need to step in and help get us Registered Nurses the Register we deserve!
I complained when it went up to £76 per year one of the reasons given then was for paying out pensions to UKCC and NMC staff. I don't have a pension through choice it won't be worth anything! This time its because too many complaints against RN's! The NMC dropped it's standards to allow people to complain about Nurses for trivial reasons (Couples splitting up. Not washing your hands after using toilet) The NMC offers me Nothing only to protect the public from me. We have courts for that! Also why don't we register with the college of training? They have all my original documents! Time to get rid of a government quango that is doing nothing other than making me pay for the privelage of being a RN and doing sod all for it! and think of the cost of just going to work? £120 NMC Union £22+ a month CRB £46 every 3 years travel costs to get to work well over £1,000 a year before all your other bills.

Comment on: Mid Staffs nurses 'will not be named'
So the Managers get it in the neck for the appauling standards of care AND Nursing (yup with a capital N!) that was given by low grade nurses. Why do the perpertaures of this virtual blood bath get away with it? NAME and shame! They have brought MY Profession in to disripute!
