Calls to expand, develop and value the nursing workforce

RCN welcomes calls to expand, develop and value the nursing workforce

The RCN has welcomed recommendations in a Parliamentary committee report on the nursing workforce, which says too little attention has been given to retaining nurses in the NHS.

The Health Select Committee report, the first of its kind for some years, makes strong suggestions on what needs to happen to stem the flow of nurses leaving the professional register. The report demands a reversal of cuts to nurses’ CPD budgets, further assurances for EU staff and close monitoring of the removal of nursing bursaries.

It follows an inquiry in which RCN Chief Executive Janet Davies gave evidence, stressing the important role access to continuing professional development (CPD) plays in the retention of nurses.
