Interesting little debate underway at the moment. We now have clearance for at least 2 cadetships and have also got bursaries, this means that individuals on these schemes can join as commissioned officers upon qualification. I wonder how much longer the 2 year`post-registration requirement for commissioning will survive.
But would it really work? Would this not see the end off OR nurses? Is this the start of the QARANC becoming an all officer corps, and if this is the case what will happen to the HCA's?
