ok, peace man! maybe I did fly off the handle a bit, sorry for being a bit sarcy, I just get fed up with having to justify myself all the time, as this is a bloody hard course, especially as half the time the tutors dont seem to know what they want you to do! Anyway, I would love to work in the US at some time, although just to open another can of worms, I saw a terminal patient last week who had been for a radical new cancer op in the US, not that it did him much good, and he said that nurses in the US
were very technically skilled,(heart & lung sounds etc) but not as caring as Uk nurses. His opinion not mine!!! Any comments, this is interesting as Uk diploma nurses are accused of being too over-educated and technical compared to their "traditonally trained" colleagues, but US nurse education is way more adademic than UK, so does the care factor get lost?
