Local nurse, Name withheld

I have just received my Nurses Registration invoice for 2020. It has gone up again, to $175.

A friend who let her registration go a year ago, as she had retired, was phoned by Lismore Base Hospital and asked if she could return to work. She declined.

The next week, the Nurses Registration Board phoned and said they had reinstated her registration at no cost.

Great, but then for the rest of us working nurses we not only pay, but more. Does that mean we are covering the cost to entice others back to work?

I am happy to be a working health professional in these difficult times, but at what cost?
