  • Comment on: Exclusive: NMC 'could' regulate nursing associates, says chief

    Shane Byrne's comment 7 February, 2016 10:11 am

    Ok, let me get this straight. The are creating a 'new' role that will be done as an apprenticeship... same as the AP, need a foundation degree... same as the AP, potentially be a band 4... same as the AP, bridge the gap between bands2/3-5... same as the AP, work along side the RGN... same as the AP... hang on, this sounds just like the AP role? Oh wait, they can't do as much as an AP... yet the NMC will regulate them and not us?

    Why are they not looking at the roles already within the NHS? If they did tgen they would see that they are describing the Assistant Practitioner that has been in service for over 10 years!!! Another way to throw money down the drain I guess.
