The Chief Nursing Officers and our Chief Executive, Jackie Smith, tell us what professionalism means to them
"Enabling professionalism lays out what good practice should look like and can be used as a guide to help nurses and midwives ensure they are applying principles of professionalism in their everyday practice."
“I believe passionately in the nursing and midwifery professions and the difference they can make to people’s lives. That is why I was delighted to lead the work to develop a professionalism framework on behalf of the four countries’ CNOs."
“We engage with people from all walks of life at every point in their lifespan from birth, at the most trying time of people’s lives, and at the time of their death. I trust the professionalism report will engage you in a conversation about what it means to be a professional nurse or midwife”
“Enabling Professionalism will support all nurses and midwives to be the very best they can be; helping to guide day to day practice across all levels and all settings so that nurses and midwives can flourish and provide excellence in their care.”
"The world is changing, and nurses and midwives have a key leadership role in meeting current and future challenges. We all have a role to play and supporting professional development is vital."
