Nursing associates’ fees consultation
We are consulting on the proposed fees for the new nursing associate role that will be introduced in England. This consultation will run from Monday 4 December 2017 until Monday 26 February 2018.
About nursing associates
In January 2017, our Council agreed to regulate nursing associates following a request from the Secretary of State. If our legislation is changed on time, we plan to open the new nursing associate part of our register in January 2019.
We are developing the standards of proficiency for nursing associates and the requirements for nursing associate education programmes. You will be invited to share your views on these proposals in spring 2018.
You can find out more information on the nursing associate webpages.
About this consultation
