    I believe the idea of a nursing associate to be a good one. As a programme I have seen many good students while very caring they do not always have the academic ability to complete year 3. Instead wasting two years training like dare I say it the enrolled nurses of old it would put more “registered” nurses back in the workforce. With an opportunity for career progression at a later date when they have gained more experience. But it should come with a registration whereby they can like qualified RNs be monitored and revalidated if they are to continue to practice.
