I've recently been seeing a student CPN - he just passed a four year degree in Mental Health - he's a smashing guy
But I was wondering if the new courses CPN's have to pass are attracting the wrong sort of people to the proffession ?

remember when i had a student cpn, he was saying there are a lot of sexual deviants in london, seems he'd been with his girl to the pub, gone to buy a pint and someone was chatting her up, i thought the next guy to chat up his girl will end up on the sexual offenders ward when he qualifies

To be fait he'd been blind and had some new treatment, wasn't it that mp blunkett who was blind who ruined his career over a women, if your disabled and a women gives you a chance, it's easy to get obsessed

What do you mean by 'attracting the wrong sort of people' ?

To be a CPn you have to first be a qualified nurse which usually means 3/4 to complete a diploma/ degree in Mental health nurseing followed by another 12 months do a specialist community practitioners course. To gain the title CPN

CPN's are autonomous practitioners.

Its not something people just gain the title of the actually have to work for it.

I am not saying that there are not CPNs who are not competant but many have worked very hard to gain the qualifications they have and still contiune to gain more qualifications post registration.
