The article quite clearly states that the number of new domestic registrants continues to fall, but there has been a slight improvement in retaining more experienced registrants. Most of the rise in numbers comes from abroad.
It also states that the full impact of removing the bursary has probably not been felt, the number of applicants for nursing courses continues to fall.
Not exactly sure how this is propoganda or how any other figures could be used.
I'm hoping CLIPP will catch on and there will be a culture of life long learning and mentorship on the wards again.
Senior members of ward teams are always chased for results, but not always supported in delivering those results.
Encouraging imaginative leadership and devolved teaching plans might put wards back on track.
Nothing new here. We did this throughout our training and qualified ready to take on the role of registered nurse.
But I'm not complaining, it's high time Benner came back in fashion. (Novice to expert)
Seriously? People don't know?
Can't agree that they were demeaning nurses. For a start it is only a nod to a nurses uniform. And they don't actually look like Any nurses I've met. Secondly they didn't make any effort to impersonate nurses or suggest they could actually nurse people.
I have far more concern over the 'sexy nurse' outfits available at fancy dress outlets or sexy nurse strippers etc the list goes on.
These people went out of their way to help and this ceo went out of her way to be offensive.
