Well done for this. Hopefully people will begin to realise what
a valuable profession nursing is, and to the guy in Subtone in Chelltenham
on Saturday night, who thought it was sexy that I was a nurse -
we're not all 'No Angels'. I am studying for a nursing DEGREE! Lets
get out there and educate them!
GRH staff Nurse
all nurses should celebrate what they do. I have been folloing the
campaign in the Nursing Standard, well done Radio Gloucestershire
for backing it. I love my Job!
What an excellent idea Garret!!! Lets not forget that the profiles
and understanding of all health care professionals and their jobs,
needs this sort of support
Having just completed an IP module with Garrett I wish him all the
very best in his career he is indeed an ambassador for the profession
- having an interest in other professions other than his own. He
is a very hard worker and will make a very good nurse. he has the
enthusiasm and drive to get others behind him with his work as ambassodor.
This sounds like a fantastic initiative and all credit to Garrett
for organising it.
I'm so pleased that somebody has taken this initiative, there is
so much bad press on health professionals in general, that i feel
it to be very possitive that people can see the hard work, caring
and effort that everone puts in to care, without the soldiers there
would be no crusade, the silent workers that plod on un noticed
need appreciated and supported.
Nurses are overworked and underpaid. It's about time someone took
