Healthy manoeuvre

October 24, 2003

Some may fear the prospect of the National Health Service University poaching pre-registration nursing education ("Health academics voice fears over NHSU takeover", THES , October 17), others may not.

If all were absorbed into a more vocational environment, university departments would be re-enabled to pursue graduate education for nurses and research that underpins it.
