UNIVERSITY open day timing (August 31) is interesting because on August 30 ABC TV announced that universities may shed nursing courses.
Given the vice-chancellor of ANU prefigured just this recently in a National Press Club address, it is no surprise.
He indicated that ordinary courses will increasingly continue to subsidise research activities that are of higher profile.
Does that mean that nursing subjects will all be online only, sacrificing expensive face-to-face teaching?
If so, the “glass ceiling” has just fallen in.
Nursing is still predominated by women and as such are an easy target.
This was expressed starkly when the previous state government slashed all nurses on fixed contracts to assist a budget problem.
In doing so, they eliminated a generation of young well-trained staff.
The late visionary matrons of the Launceston General Hospital and the Royal Hobart Hospital would no doubt be livid with fury.
The recognition of nursing as a profession has now been revisited and is still really only a future aspiration it seems.
That medicine will come to the defence of nursing is a faint hope indeed as their status is secure.
