ok.. having made a complete muck up of modernising doctors careers, our beloved goverment has turned its beady eye on nurses.. there are consultation documents out about this (bet none of you have seen them) and they seem to have forgotten to consult with us, the nurses who do the work! the RCN are involved (so where is my info from the RCN?).
so there is a link to the Nurse practitioner site on which you can find the documents.
it looks as the opening of a register of advanced nurse practitioners will be delayed until this has gone through, Reading it, there seems to be no mention of the role of the NP or nursing in primary care (and we are different to hospital nurses!). So read it and respond......
