“Nursing Associates will become an essential part of the care and nursing workforce” Health Education England 2018

“Whatever your role, or wherever you work, I am sure you will recognise both the challenges and the exciting possibilities for the profession.” Professor Lisa Bayliss-Pratt, director of nursing, Health Education England, 2017

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

“The first nursing associate programmes started in January 2017, and we expect the first nursing associates to qualify in early 2019. The student nursing associates on the pilot programmes are training according to a framework developed by HEE, which was informed by a public consultation on the role. They will need to meet the NMC’s nursing associate standards of proficiency to qualify as nursing associates and apply to join the register. The Government has determined that statutory regulation of the nursing associate profession is required to protect the public. In January 2017, our Council agreed to the Department of Health and Social Care’s request to regulate nursing associates in England.” NMC April 2018

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 limited number of free places will be offered to trainee nursing associates, and discounts are available for staff from the lead test sites.
