Fitness to Practise

The Royal College of Nursing has worked in liaison with the Nursing Midwifery Council to develop this evidence-based programme. The aim of the programme is to encourage employers to consider taking a learning approach, rather than a punitive approach to address any conduct and capability issues that arise.
