Nursing Shortage.

 Paul Muller, Woodthorpe Gardens, Sandal, Wakefield. Yorks Post.
WHY is there a shortage of nurses in our NHS?
The Nursing 2000 project took nurses away from the bedside and changed their training from hospital to university.
Nursing is an apprenticeship and a practical vocation which is learned on hospital wards, not an academic career.
Finally, the nurse bursaries have now been taken from them, and so now we have 9,000 unfilled nurse training posts in universities, meaning even fewer nurses in the future.
