Doctors can level up and learn a specialization from intern level

Nurses don't

Technologists don't

Am I doing something wrong or can they not learn? (Nurses with no specilizations can't train to become receptionists or surgery nurses? Technologists with no specilizations can't learn Radiology or Advanced Biochemistry?)

So I just tested my theory.

Here is a Technologist that I employed as an intern with no specializations. He is now level 2. He still has no specializations. I can't chose one, I can't change his department from the Emergency icon next to his portrait, nor can I change it from the 'Select Department' button. I can't change his work station to one of the Radiology labs as he doesn't have Radiology (A specialization available to level 2 Technologists that I employed at level 2, along with Advanced Biochemistry, Cardiology, Neurology, etc.)

If the Technologists (And I suspect Nurses but am yet to trial that scenario) can't be up-skilled, why have Interns available? I wasn't sure if I was doing something wrong but, as I now know there is no version of me changing their job or department without the relevant specialization, I can now definitely diagnose this as a bug.

I don't think it's actually possible to change the department for any of your staff.
It makes sense for doctors because they're specialized, but not for your other staff.

But if that's the case and you can't level up, change specialization or department for Nurses or Technologists, why have the 'Intern' level that comes with nothing? Surely the idea would be that you can either go ahead and pay for the specialization now with a MUCH higher salary per person, or you can pay less for Interns and watch them develop and learn, the trade off is that things that require the specialization take longer to achieve.

For instance, I only employ Interns at Emergency. Once they level up they can move onto a new department and work in that departments office (General Surgery for instance). Once they gain more experience they can move onto the hospitalization and change to either Operative Surgery, or Anaesthesiology, there's a progressive tree. The same should be true for all staff. I should be able to have an Intern Technologist in the Lab, once they have experience they can move to Radiology or Neurology or even stay where they are with Advanced Biochemistry. Would that not make more sense and be a better pay off for using Interns and playing a slower, long game?

And so I can confirm that Nurses suffer the same fate as Technologists too. They can't learn a specialization after levelling up.

Can this be fixed please? I'd like to be able to nurture my employees and give them goals and not rely on the more expensive ones with specializations please...

If I'm doing something wrong please let me know so that I can change the way I play to make it work, or can you give an ETA on a fix?

Many thanks

That's wonderful news. That I was right and not that there's a bug in what I must otherwise say is an incredible game. I'm having a lot of fun playing it, designing a hospital and learning the mechanics. Congratulations on what I consider the best hospital management game available.

I'd be amiss if I didn't ask how long you think it will take till a patch will be available though? Many thanks

If we didn't like the game we wouldn't be bothering to report the bugs Smile
Every bug report is a player saying "I really like this game and I want to keep playing it but this thing is bothering me. Please fix it so I can enjoy the game more."

That's exactly right. We're here to say "I'm having a good time here but I've seen something that you may not have encountered before that may need attention". And I really am enjoying the game. Having said that, I'm eager to know when you think you may be able to implement a fix for it so I can carry on playing and enjoying the game to its full potential.
