Developing the Role of the Nursing Associate

Wednesday 22 Apr 2020

Novotel Conference Centre, York

Follow the conversation on Twitter #NursingAssociate

This conference will update delegates on developing the role of the Nursing Associate – understanding the elements of this new role, and how the role is being delivered in practice. Through national updates, case studies from the Nursing Associate test sites, 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. Case studies will look at experiences in acute trusts, community and mental health. The conference will also discuss implementing the Guidance on Medicines Management and the Nursing Associate and the Standards of Proficiency for Nursing Associates.

“More than 1,000 people are now registered as qualified nursing associates”.

Nursing and Midwifery Council June 2019

“It is clear that the trainee nursing associate role is becoming an integral part of the health and care workforce playing a key role in supporting patients, carers and their families up and down the country.”

Professor Lisa Bayliss Pratt, Pro Vice-Chancellor at the University of Coventry and who was HEE’s lead for the development of the role, 17th October 2019


The conference will also help delegates 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
  • Reflect on national developments including NMC Regulation & Revalidation, the Guidance on Medicines Management and the Nursing Associate and the new October 2018 Standards of Proficiency for Nursing 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 non test sites can prepare for the adoption of the role
  • Self assess and reflect on your own practice
  • Gain CPD accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence
