Science, anatomy and physiology were glossed over, often with a whole physiological system being 'covered' in one afternoon session.
I have been told by a friend in another institution that some nursing schools had actually removed pharmacology from their syllabus in prior years to make way for more 'soft skills'. This means that nurses have been qualified by a school that gave greater priority to 'soft skills' than fundamental aspects of drugs, their mechanisms and uses.
What the fucking hell is going on? Pray tell me, what the fuck are qualified nurses for again? Oh, hang on: is it nursing? Then why the fuck are they not being taught the fundamentals of the human physiological system? Why the hell are they not being taught about the effects of the drugs that they have to administer? Has the entire country gone insane?
One lecturer stated that it is not necessary to learn cannulation or catheterisation or IV therapy on the course as we can go on top up courses when we have qualified and found employment.
WHAT! Fuck you, cunty-balls; you learn at the fucking college: that's what the entire exercise is for, for crying out loud!
We're all fucked. The nurses are fucked because they are going to have a hard time getting jobs, and we're all fucked because we will be receiving injections from someone who hasn't been taught how to administer one in the three fucking years that she was at college!
