Views from the forum on criticism of nurse training

- Only infrequently have I heard qualified staff criticise the training – it is more likely to be the nursing student who complains about the lack of ‘proper nursing skills’. I started nurse training once before in 1982 – the practical skills base was superior then to my experiences of the last three years.

- There is little point in criticising modern nurse training, because those who designed it were and are convinced they are right. In this evidence-based profession, it is surprising evidence that is counter to certain opinion is totally ignored.

- I think we have to address issues such as mentorship and the time and training to do it, and also the level of support from the college when the student obviously isn’t getting it. I don’t think that keeping changing the course is the answer.
