Social care nursing is a unique profession – Covid-19 must not tarnish its appeal   –   Nursing in Practice

Best estimates tell us we have between 42-45,000 nurses working in social care in England. But the official figures tell us of the 15,500 residential homes in England there are not much over 4,000 with nurses – so less than a third.  With increased complexity and the sizable strain placed on nursing homes we must ensure we can recruit the people we need. But how can we go about addressing the recruitment challenges in social care nursing as we move forward?
