Our podcast guests explain what community nurses need to know about NMC changes and how they can gain a specialist practice qualification
What do major changes to post-registration standards mean for nurses’ careers?
The latest episode of the Nursing Standard podcast explores the new standards of proficiency for specialist community public health nurses and specialist practice qualifications introduced by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
Our podcast guests, NMC executive director of professional practice Geraldine Walters and NMC assistant director of professional practice Anne Trotter, explain what nurses need to know about the changes hailed as the most significant shake-up to advanced community nursing qualifications for 30 years.
Changes to standards, qualifications and preregistration courses
They speak to Nursing Standard editor Flavia Munn about what the standards entail, how nurses can gain one of the qualifications and how the courses are quality assured.
The episode also looks at a consultation on preregistration education requirements and what the proposed changes may mean for nursing students and the profession.
