The big question: will the RCN's This is Nursing campaign help to restore the profession's image?


The Royal College of Nursing has launched the This is Nursing campaign to show the public the impressive work that nurses do.

The campaign will tell the public about the reality of modern-day nursing and the skills required to be part of the profession. What impact do you think the campaign will have on the public? Will it alter the public’s view of the profession?

Add your comments and they could be published in the magazine.

  • the reality of nursing? what do you mean? a video showing nurses being shouted at by patients and visitors, over-worked, stressed, not getting any breaks and going home late.

  • The great british public need to be aware of what is involved in nursing today. All the social aspects/paperwork of nursing, risk assessments, audits about audits, receptionist/clerk and after all that we manage to do a bit of nursing(the job I was trained and employed for) to a standard I am not proud of anymore because I don't have the time.
    If a nurse was able to concentrate on nursing his/ her patients I am sure the professions image could be restored.
