Enrolled Nurses: A Study for the UKCC.
Seccombe, I.; Smith, G.; Buchan, J.; Ball, J.
Selected issues of concern to second-level enrolled (registered) nurses in the United Kingdom were examined through national surveys of two groups: (1) a random sample of 21,762 of the 115,459 nurses holding second-level registration in the United Kingdom, and (2) 700 employers who, included nurse executive directors in all National Health Service (NHS) trusts plus a sample of non-NHS employers. The number of individuals with second-level registration was discovered to have declined by almost one-fourth between March 1993 and March 1996. That decline was attributed to the following: cessation of training for entry to second-level registration; conversions to first-level registration; and retirement and nonrenewal of registration. It was concluded that a significant and continuing supply of second-level registrants would likely exist for the foreseeable future. Although most employers anticipated continued growth in employment of first-level registered nurses and health care assistants, they foresaw a continuing decline in their employment of enrolled nurses. Many enrolled nurses were pessimistic about their future prospects in nursing. (The report contains 55 references and 73 tables/figures. Appended are the following: list of organizations contacted; information about the registered practitioner and employer surveys; and the registrants' and employers' questionnaires.) (MN)
