Consultations and surveys

NMC want to hear from nurses, managers and employers in social care

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) is consulting on post-registration standards for nurses working in health and social care and would like to hear from nurses working in social care as well as employers and others with an interest in nursing standards.

The consultation, building on ambitions for community and public health nursing, looks at the new draft post-registration standards for the next generation of community and public health nurses working in health and social care, including schools and workplaces. These draft standards, which have been coproduced with subject experts, will provide the right proficiencies these professionals need to support and care for people in a rapidly changing world.

The consultation is on new draft standards of proficiency for specialist community public health nursing (SCPHN), standards of proficiency for community specialist practice qualifications (SPQs) and associated standards for post-registration programmes.

The NMC’s vision is that the new standards of proficiency will build on ambitions for community and public health nursing now, and in the future. They will do this by setting out the knowledge and skills that practitioners need to deliver complex modern care in the community and improve public health.

The consultation closes on Monday 12 August 2021.
