Are the government’s newly proposed career pathways for nurses a marked improvement on the current system?

‘Children’s nursing encompasses all aspects of health. Currently there is a shortage of qualified children’s nurses within the acute and mental health sectors. I see this development adding to the critical situation’
Sue Daniel, designated nurse for children looked after, Southampton

‘No, learning disability is completely excluded and is a specialty on its own. Not all people sit so easily in these boxes and staff will become so specialised they will be deskilled in other areas’
Caroline Hodgson, community psychiatric nurse, Lincoln

‘Theories have the potential to improve anything. We must take a leap of faith – my faith is in the next generation of nurses, not those who write proposals’
Maria Gough, senior nurse practitioner, Harlow NHS Walk-in Centre

‘The aspiration that future students follow the patient journey is philosophically sound and should establish a sense of empathy’
Stephen Weeks, day treatment nurse, South West Yorkshire
