    Enough nurses or not?

    as a UK trained nurse it took me around 6 months to study for the NCLEX and pass with the minimum questions and in the minimum time.....

    student midwife to be...

    hi i am not sure if a mental health background qualifies you but the best way to go about it is contact your local university or nhs trust and see if they are offering the course then ask for the entry requirements

    Smoking in Unform..unprofessional???

    Hi Guys!! I am a long time member of this forum, recently inactive for various reasons..anyway, hello to all of those who know me, and those of you that dont!! :) Heres a little question i wanted to ask the forum, this week my trust has introduced a ban on nurses smoking in uniform by the front door of the hospital as it gives the patients a bad impression and looks unprofessional, all smokers (im not one myself, i add) must now go to the back of the hospital to smoke in the loading bay area. there are smoking shelters at the front of the hospital (patient use) the nurses must not use these but go to the rear of the hospital as stated above. so, my question is...what is your opinion? is this right, does a smoking nurse look unprofessional?, whats next, fat nurses banned from eating crisps in their uniform?? I am not saying that the trust is wrong (heaven forbid) just wondered what you all think?
