Developing the Role of the Nursing Associate

Tuesday 9 Mar 2021

VIRTUAL, Online

Follow the conversation on Twitter #NursingAssociate

“The nursing associate is a new generic nursing role in England that bridges the gap between healthcare support workers and registered nurses, to deliver hands-on, person-centred care as part of a multidisciplinary team in a range of different settings.. The role has been introduced to help build the capacity of the nursing workforce and the delivery of high-quality care while supporting nurses and wider multidisciplinary teams to focus on more complex clinical duties… Nursing associates are subject to regulatory requirements such as revalidation and fitness to practise”

NHS Employers 2020

“The successful deployment of the nursing associate will depend (at least in part) on the commitment and understanding of the local leaders.”

The National Quality Board

This conference will update delegates on developing the role of the Nursing Associate – understanding the elements of the role, and how the role is being delivered in practice. Through a national update from Gary Kirwan, National Officer, The Royal College of Nursing, case studies from acute trusts, primary care and mental health, and perspectives from Nursing Associates the conference will look at the developing role, regulation of the role, accountability, support and practice development, competence and how you can prepare for the introduction of the role in your service.

The conference will also discuss implementing the Guidance on Medicines Management and the Nursing Associate and the NMC Standards of Proficiency for Nurse Associates. The conference will help you to support Nursing Associates following the recent independent evaluation of the role which found some trainees reported that their colleagues had struggled to provide them with learning support at times due to workforce challenges and limited understanding of the role.

This conference will enable you to:

  • Network with colleagues who are implementing and developing the Nursing Associate role
  • Learn from outstanding practice in training and supporting Nursing Associates
  • Understand how the role has changed during Covid-19
  • Reflect on national developments including NMC Regulation & Revalidation, the Guidance on Medicines Management and the Nursing Associate and the Standards of Proficiency for Nurse Associates
  • Ensure safety and develop effective governance and accountability
  • Improve the way Nursing Associates are introduced and supported
  • Learn from the lived experience of Registered Nursing Associates including the Joint Lead Nursing Associate Ambassador at NHS England/Health Education England
  • Learn from case studies in acute care, community care and mental health
  • Understand how you can improve competence and compliance with national NMC standards
  • Identify key strategies for medicines management
  • Understand how to support nursing associates in your service 
  • Self assess and reflect on your own practice
  • Gain CPD accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence
