The new standards for education from the Nursing and Midwifery Council provide the framework for pre-registration nurse education programmes and will determine how we train our future nursing workforce.
Employers need to take action now to prepare for these changes and take advantage of the opportunities available to ensure newly qualified nurses are fit for purpose and ready to deliver high-quality care for patients.
This Briefing outlines the timetable for the change and highlights the roles employers and key partners need to undertake. It provides learning from previous changes to education policy, ideas for ensuring success in your organisation and questions to help you assess how ready you are for the change.
