NMC to hold series of webinars for registrants, nurse educators and other stakeholders

Nurses can take part in a series of webinars on post-registration education standards to be introduced in 2023.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) is consulting registrants, employers, educators and other stakeholders on the new standards and will hold a series of webinars on the issue in June and July, with the first session on 29 June.

What will change?

Current standards will be withdrawn and new ones introduced for specialist community public health nurse roles, which means health visitors, school nurses and occupational health nurses. The new standards will also cover specialist practice qualifications (SPQs).

Nurses can take part in a series of webinars on post-registration education standards to be introduced in 2023. 

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) is consulting registrants, employers, educators and other stakeholders on the new standards and will hold a series of webinars on the issue in June and July, with the first session on 29 June.

What will change?

Current standards will be withdrawn and new ones introduced for specialist community public health nurse roles, which means health visitors, school nurses and occupational health nurses. The new standards will also cover specialist practice qualifications (SPQs).

Five of these specialist practice qualifications – community children’s, community learning disability, community mental health, general practice, and district nursing — will be consolidated into a single qualification. Four – adult, children’s, learning disability and mental health nursing — will be removed.

Nurse regulator is inviting feedback

Nurses can give feedback on the changes through a survey or by emailing PRSCOI@nmc-uk.org. They can use the same email address to join a 'community interest group' and receive updates.
