NMC agrees to regulate new nursing associate role
25.01.17

A new care role in the nursing family

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has today formally agreed to a request from the Department of Health to be the regulator for the new nursing associate role.

Jackie Smith, NMC Chief Executive and Registrar of the NMC said:

“After a thoughtful and thorough discussion, the NMC’s Council has agreed to a request from the Department of Health to be the regulator for the new nursing associate role.

“The Council recognised that there is strong support for the regulation of nursing associates and I have always maintained that the public would expect any role with nursing in the title to be regulated.

i.e.

Nursing is forced down the American route, and will soon be almost entirely populated by diploma-level nurse associates, who will be more flexible than Olympic gymnasts, running from ward to ward to maintain a modicum of staffing, being summoned by phone, not daring to refuse a split-shift or sudden call out. And in the most weasel words imaginable, the NMC again tries to hide from the abandonment of the degree nurse by saying it has ‘formally agreed’ to register the new model of nursing – pull the other leg, you have no choice, no more than any poodle who is forced to obey its master’s voice. ‘ After a thoughtful and thorough discussion’ –  stuff straight from the bed-pan!

The irony of ironies – those who are being thrown of the ship keep on paying the rabble who are doing the throwing.

Do you think that it will never be you, that it will always be someone else?

Is anyone really that thick?

Do you think that nursing is a 25 year, mortgage-paying career?

Is anyone really that thick?

Or Cowardly?
