Our research contributes so much, but we need to shout about that

Liz Halcomb @LizHalcomb Editor, Nurse Researcher

Despite playing such a key role in 2020, nursing is not immune from job losses and restructuring. Clinical nurses have had hours reduced and lost employment; nurse academics face widespread redundancies, early retirement and higher teaching workloads. Beyond the consequences for the professional education of nurses is the real threat to nursing scholarship. Most academic workload is spread between teaching and research. As universities are forced to do more with less, the time and resources for research are an easy target for cuts.
