Wendy Preston, Chair of ARNS encourages members to complete RCN Safer Staffing Survey

As Chair of ARNS, I would urge you to complete the following RCN  Safer Staffing survey (you need not be a member to complete it). The survey aims to capture what nurse staffing levels are like across all area’s and identify relevant issues/ themes to inform recommendations. There is a section to add narrative that you may find useful. Please complete this even if your ‘last shift/ work day’ was fully staffed, you can add previous issues, such as:

  • Not taking breaks
  • Staying after work
  • Covering nurse vacancies by doing another role to yours e.g. working as a Staff Nurse on a ward
  • No time in establishment for training/ annual leave
  • No leadership time

The deadline is May 31st and it is important to get the Respiratory Nurse contribution to this survey.

Complete the survey here
