NURSES ONCE QUALIFIED HAVE TO REGISTER EVERY YEAR WITH AN UPDATE OF THEIR

TRAINING,COURSES AND EXPERIENCE.

IF A NURSE TAKES A CAREER BREAK TO HAVE A FAMILY OR A FAMILY CARER SHE

IMMEDIATELY RISKS BEING REMOVED FROM THE REGISTER.

WHAT AN ABSOLUTE WASTE OF ALL THE MONEY USED TO TRAIN THESE NURSES.

I TRAINED AS A STATE REGISTERED NURSE IN THE LATE 60S AND HAD A THREE  YEAR

CAREER BREAK. UPON RETURNING TO THE HOSPITAL AS A STAFF NURSE I WAS STILL

VERY COMPETENT AT MY JOB AND ONLY NEEDED A SMALL AMOUNT OF REFRESHER

COURSES TO BE UP TO A VERT HIGH STANDARD.

I WAS APPALLED TO READ ABOUT A REGISTERED NURSE WHO HAD

WRITTEN TO A NURSING MAGAZINE THAT SHE HAD  RETURNED TO  WORK AT  THE

HOSPITAL AS A NURSING ASSISTANT THATS THE BEST SHE COULD GET.!!!

WHAT AN ABSOLUTE WASTE OF ALL THAT INTENSIVE TRAINING.

Why is this idea important?

REGISTERED NURSES SHOULD BE ALLOWED CAREER BREAKS WITHOUT BEING

REMOVED FROM THE REGISTER. THEY SHOULD RETURN TO WORK AS STAFF NURSES

AND ATTEND SOME UPDATING AND REFRESHER COURES.

WE WOULD THEREFORE SAVE MONEY BRINGING IN FORIEGN NURSES AT GREAT

EXPENSE TO COVER OUR NATIONAL SHORTFALL OF NURSING STAFF ON THE WARDS.

MOREOVER IT IS EXPENSIVE TO USE AGENCY NURSES.

WE WOULD SAVE SUCH LARGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY.

KEEP WHAT I CONSIDER TO BE THE BEST TRAINED NURSES IN THE WORLD.
