Government ‘short-changing’ nurses on education and training, says UNISON ahead of Westminster debate
UNISON is urging MPs to highlight the urgent need for substantial investment in education and training for nurses and other healthcare staff.   The call comes ahead of a special debate later today (Wednesday) in Parliament on the future of nurse education funding that, the union says, has been severely hit by cuts.   The number of people applying for and taking up places on nursing courses has fallen dramatically, says UNISON, as a result of the government replacing the NHS bursary with tuition fees and student loans.   To make matters worse, there are currently more than 41,000 nursing vacancies in England,...

How Some Stress Can Actually Be Good for You
Stress is often viewed as an exclusively negative sensation: Work deadlines pile up, family drama takes its toll, busy schedules wear us thin and we wind up drained.

Researchers have identified two different types of stress — ‘distress,’ which refers to negative stress (a breakup) and ‘eustress,’ which refers to positive stress (starting a new job).
