Nursing associate consultation: inform our response

The NMC is consulting on the Code, skills and standards for nursing associates.

The nursing associate is a new role introduced by the Department of Health and Social Care in England. The role is designed to bridge the gap between health care assistants (HCAs) and registered nurses.
 
The RCN is developing its response to the NMC’s consultation. At a series of workshops held in April 2018, RCN members identified some key issues, which we asked for your views on via an online survey.
 
The survey is now closed and our response to this consultation will be published soon.
