i was in the last group of students who trained in the project 2000. i just want to say yes training was different to how some of you trained pre p2000, but i 2 worked just as hard, made beds, know drugs, drugs and docs rounds take charge etc etc. we did spend more time in uni than on wards but as you come up to qualify more time was spent on wards.
i have also found how some pre 2000 nurses are so stuck in their old ways that they need to realise things are updated now and sometimes this causes conflict. im not saying its wrong but things move on and in years to come things will be completely different for me as times change so i will have to adapt. i just want to say because im a p 2000 trained nurse i dont consider myself in competent and ask stupid questions. i feel i have excelled and very proud of myself. i have only been qualified 2 and half yrs and have just got sponsorship to do my health visitor course, which is very difficult to get in UK. i know 2 members of staff on my ward who tried to get sponsorship for HV course and didnt and they are 'F' grades who qualified way before p 2000, so p2000 cant be as bad.
