      Where do all these nurses get their training from?

      And why not be a nurse in their home country?

        From high quality European nursing schools, maybe people aren't sick so much in other EU countries, Brits are the fattest of all of Europe

          Hasn't nursing become one of those things that has been over academicised & many now consider themselves above hands on nursing hence the need to bring people in?

              But doesn't that mean migrant nurses must have degrees too?

                Not for the present day equivalent of the SEN I shouldn't have thought so.

                  Many former NHS nurses now work through agencies. That way they get paid more.
                  The cost to the NHS (and hence the taxpayer) goes through the roof, and they backfill for the more menial work by bringing in cheap foreign nurses.

                    Nursing is more academic because it is more technical now. A lot of the 'hand-on' work is conducted by healthcare assistants now.
