Developing the role of the Nursing Associate

Mon 5 March 2018 to Mon 5 March 2018, De Vere W1 Conference Centre, London

This conference will update delegates on the Nursing Associate role –understanding the elements of this new role, and how the role will be delivered in practice. Through national updates, case studies from the Nursing Associate test sites, and perspectives from Nursing Associate Trainees the conference will look at the developing role, the Nursing Associate Curriculum, regulation of the role, accountability, competence and how you can prepare for the introduction of the role in practice.  A limited number of free places will be offered to trainee nursing associates, and discounts are available for staff from the lead test sites.

“Benefits to the NHS 

  • The Nursing Associate will be delivering a higher proportion of fundamental care nationally, at scale and pace. 
  • It will be a defined role with clear national education and training standards to ensure consistency and continuity in the quality of care, supporting Registered Nurses to deliver and manage caseload effectively and safely. 
  • The shift towards new and local care models has meant the delivery of NHS funded services will be devolved at the local level through Sustainability and Transformation Plans, making the delivery of care bespoke to local need. This is why a bridging role between a care assistant and a Registered Nurse has emerged as a crucial addition in the delivery of high quality and responsive fundamental care.
  • The role will support the shift in the balance of care of long term conditions into the community”
