Warning over nurse recruitment

12th May 2009

The Royal College of Nursing has warned that the NHS needs to focus on attracting more school leavers into nursing.

The RCN said that in the next ten years 200,000 nurses would retire. RCN general secretary Peter Carter said the government needed to do more to attract young people.

"It's clear that the image of nursing does not reflect reality. Modern nursing is a dynamic career, providing an incredibly broad range of opportunities and a real chance to have an interesting, successful career that makes a real difference to other people's lives," he added.
