The article offers the author's insights on the role of multiple sclerosis (MS) nurses which has been barely mentioned in the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)'s MS management guidelines. Topics include the concerns raised about the security of positions of MS nurses, a debate on whether the role of specialist nurse was valued and embedded in Great Britain's National Health Service (NHS), and the creation of the Apollo Nursing Resource.
