Nurses now train in a pack of up to 500
They do not do paediatrics/ psychiatry/ obstetrics/ community/ theatre / A and E / ITU in their training.
You have a terrible training and everyone has a BSc these days - it means very little
Nurses do not have the clinical input and experience they used to have in their training,
The reason that they were taken out of schools of nursing is that it is much much cheaper to train in the ''university'' system.
On the wards - there are few nurses and mainly care assistants,
ps IT IS - paediatrics / character / professional . college - and many other spelling corrections required.

Crazy. What does any of that have to do with nursing?
While they're wiping my rear or changing my pan they're supposed to talk to me about guns?
My wife is a RN, and has a Bachelors of Science in Nursing, and honestly, I find your comment degrading and sexist. My wife is an extremely hard worker, much like many peers in her field. She doesn't often wipe butts, or change pans, because her level of training and degree received actually calls for her to triage your whiny butt, help doctors diagnose your illnesses, detect early warning signs, responsibly keep track and administer your medications, and also advice against ill actions that doctors may take due to lack of knowledge about a patient. You should really take heed in referring to a service field like nursing as "butt wipers" and "pan changers". Nurses save as many lives as police, emts, and firefighters, and typically do it while working in understaffed, underpayed, and extremely stressful environments, all with a smile on their face, and a love for their career. And my wife, being the wife of a former marine and two time iraq vet, probably knows more about firearms than you ever will. Jerk.
It is not my job to wipe your bottom I am much too busy for that. You are thinking of CNAs. Nurses run the hospital.
