“The current challenges faced by the NHS provider sector ‒ increasing demand for services, an ageing population, financial constraints and workforce supply and retention issues across many healthcare professions and disciplines ‒are likely to remain for the foreseeable future…The nursing associate (NA) role is designed to bridge the skills gap between the health care support worker and more senior registered professional and provide a new route into the registered nurse (RN) pathway. The more senior registered professional will continue to be the primary assessors and prescribers of care while NAs deliver and adapt care, contributing to assessment within agreed parameters …There are considerable opportunities and benefits in deploying the Nursing Associate. Some of the opportunities and benefits will come unexpectedly others will be intentional and planned.”  An improvement resource for the deployment of nursing associates in secondary care, NHS Improvement November 2018

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

“In just a few short months we’ll welcome the first qualified nursing associates into the workforce in England…It’s clear from what we’ve seen and heard that trainee nursing associates are appreciated by those they’re caring for, and that the nurses they are working alongside recognise the potential of the role now and in the future.” Geraldine Walters, Director of Education and Standards at the NMC September 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, regulation of the role, accountability, 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 trusts and general practice. The conference will also discuss implementing the 2018 Guidance on Medicines Management and the Nursing Associate and  the new October 2018 Standards of Proficiency for Nurse Associates

The standards of proficiency presented here represent the standards of knowledge and skills that a nursing associate will need to meet in order to be considered by the NMC as capable of safe and effective nursing associate practice. These standards have been designed to apply across all health and care settings” NMC October 2018

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