Towards a framework for post-registration nursing careers: consultation response report

Consultation
Abstract: 
This proposal will have implications for all nurses including those working in public health and infection prevention and control, it summarises the results of the consultation held to gauge opinion on proposals to introduce structure and standards into post-registration nursing careers The purpose of this consultation was to test the relevance and usefulness of a pathway model to aligning nursing careers with patient and service need and improving the quality of care. It also looked for a steer on nurses’ roles and on regulation. Responses suggest there is overall support for the main proposals, particularly the need for clear, academic and experiential benchmarks to be standardised at thresholds of practice, and provide a mandate to continue the work.
