What do you think of this key part of the government response to the Francis report?
One of the most talked about recommendations to come from the Francis report was that student nuses work for 3 months under the supervision of a qualified nurse before they are given funding to complete a nursing degree.
When the government responded to the report, they extended this to “up to a year” and clarified that aspiring nurses would need to work as HCAs.
What do you think?
Would this have put you off starting your training?
Does this plan affect how HCAs are viewed as part of the multidisciplinary team?
