Debate continues about the hierarchy of skilled roles comprising the nursing workforce: should there be grades of qualified nurses other than registered nurses; should all registered nurses be prepared to degree level; and to what extent should the nursing workforce comprise staff not qualified as nurses? Such questions raise critical issues on how different configurations of staff impact on patient care outcomes and whether judgements can be made about their cost effectiveness.
