NMC’s consultation on the approach to regulation

We consulted on the standards and requirements for the nursing associate regulation consultation for 12 weeks from 9 April until 2 July 2018.

A big thank you to everyone who submitted a response. All of your responses are now being analysed and will help us to confirm the regulatory approach for the new nursing associate profession.

The Department for Health and Social Care held a consultation on changes to our legislation which closed on 26 December 2017. They produced their response to the consultation in April 2018
