The Prime Ministers Commission on the future of Nursing and Midwifery – Thursday, March 11, 2010

The Report Recommends:

“The Nursing and Midwifery Council must regulate advanced nursing practice, ensuring that advanced practitioners are recorded as such on the register and have the required competencies. Stakeholders must also consider how to reduce and standardize the proliferation of roles and job titles in nursing.”
The NMC Responds:
“The NMC will be establishing a project group to examine the basic competencies required of someone practising at an advanced level in order to protect the public. The group will be seeking to learn the views of stakeholders and the lessons from how other countries, such as Australia and the USA, already regulate advanced nursing practice. ”
