Retaining the Passion: When Mistakes Happen.

Clare and Craig catch up and discuss their reasoning for choosing the episode title, “When Mistakes Happen”. They discuss whether universities prepare new registrants for WHEN they make a mistake rather than IF, how the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) can be used as a punitive tool, and how new registrants can become so paralysed by the fear of making mistakes that they can result in making mistakes.

Together, Clare and Craig interview two incredibly insightful guests. Firstly, Liz Jeremiah, a registered senior staff nurse in ITU and RCN Steward. Next, the Chief Executive Officer and Registrar of the NMC, Andrea Sutcliffe. Clare and Craig talk to both about what to do when we make mistakes and how we can all move forward in our nursing journeys. They then reflect on these discussions and how the nursing profession can address mistakes moving forward.
