The Nursing and Midwifery Council regulates nurses and midwives in the UK. Its core purpose is to protect the public, and it needs your help with an important piece of work that has the potential to touch all of us who experience nursing care.
One of the most important parts of the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s role is to set the standards of education and training for nurses and midwives, so they can deliver high-quality healthcare throughout their careers.
The Council will be running a public consultation looking at the new education standards that students will need to meet before they can become registered nurses, and the Council really wants to hear from service users, carers and healthcare professionals.
It has organised some events to allow patients, carers, staff and members of the public to have their say and help them to shape the next generation of nurses and midwives.
The workshops currently available for registering interest are on Population Health, focusing on mental health and healthy weight, and the Nursing and Midwifery Workforce, focusing on the scale of the workforce, stable teams and professional/evidence-based practice.
