In September 2010, the Nursing and Midwifery Council published new Standards for pre-registration nursing education, which provide the framework for nursing education programmes and are central to how nurses will be trained. To support employers, we have conducted some research with trusts who are implementing the new standard so that others can learn from their experiences.
The NHS Employers organisation conducted interviews with a number of employers throughout autumn 2011 to indentify how they had approached the introduction of the changes to nursing education. This brochure compiles the results of those interviews, identifying common trends and brings together local experiences and offers advice to help other employers implement the changes.
