Abstract

A recent series of debates on social media has prompted us to write this editorial to state our position regarding the importance to cardiac nursing of promoting and protecting nurse education. In so doing we hope to persuade our colleagues, policy makers and professional body that the phrase nurse training is outdated and inappropriate for describing nurse education in the 21st century and should be banished from our vocabulary. Within the United Kingdom the professional body: the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has recently conducted a review of nurse education and therefore it is perhaps timely that we consider the current and future preparation of the nursing workforce and the potential impact, particularly on cardiac patients. From a personal perspective we find it frustrating and disappointing that many of our colleagues within Higher Education and indeed many senior nurses, the DoH and secretary of state for Health (England) continue to refer to nurse training, training numbers and to individuals being a trained nurse. Within the current review, the NMC sets out what is referred to as enhanced knowledge and skills that people can expect from nurses in the future’ (NMC, 2018) therefore we contest that training is not enough.
