“This year sees the introduction of a new role, the Nursing Associate, an important new addition to our team… A Nursing Associate is not a registered nurse and will not replace them, but they will instead have the training and skills to bridge the gap between what a health care assistant can do and what a registered nurse is now needed to do” Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer, NHS England December 2016

“Nursing associates play an important role in a multi-disciplinary workforce, meeting the needs of a changing population and the Five Year Forward View.” NHS England 2016

“The new role is expected to work alongside care assistants and registered nurses to deliver hands-on care, focusing on ensuring patients continue to get the compassionate care they deserve. Its introduction has the potential to transform the nursing and care workforce.” Health Education England

“The creation of the Nursing Associate is a landmark innovation for the nursing and care professions. The introduction of this new role has been welcomed by a broad spectrum of health and social care stakeholders, all of whom want a defined highly trained support role to help Registered Nurses deliver effective, safe and responsive care. The Nursing Associate will also play a key part of the  multi-disciplinary workforce that is needed to respond to the future needs of the public and patients.” Health Education England

“The role has the potential to transform the nursing and care workforce.” Susan Kennedy, Educationalist and Project Manager, & Curricula Lead,  curriculum framework documentation for the new Nursing Associate role, Health Education England, 2016

This conference will update delegates on the Nursing Associate role –understanding the elements of this new role, and how the role will be delivered in practice. Through national updates, case studies from the Nursing Associate test sites, and perspectives from Nursing Associate Trainees the conference will look at the developing role, the Nursing Associate Curriculum, regulation of the role, accountability, competence and how you can prepare for the introduction of the role in practice. 

A discounted rate of £195+VAT is offered to trainee nursing associates, and discounts are available for staff from the lead test sites.
