RCN Forum May 2015

A short presentation with my views of modern nursing - and a few other things.  A comment from someone present: '...recently attended a  fantastic RCN event entitled 'What is the modern nurse?: A force for change'. It was so interesting - the debates were very thought provoking especially Roger Watson who was by far the most impressive speaker. He was so refreshing in among the very scripted and uninspiring head nurse and RCN representative.'
