Standards for post-registration
As part of our education programme of change, we’re now beginning to consider our post-registration standards.
During 2018 we commissioned an independent evaluation of our specialist community public health nursing (SCPHN) and specialist practice qualification standards (SPQ).
The evaluation was carried out by an external research organisation, Blake Stevenson, and has been published. Read a copy of the report.
These findings will inform the next stages of our review and in summer 2019 we’ll start to talk to interested nurses and midwives more about this.
We haven’t made any decisions on this issue and won’t do so before we’ve considered the findings of the evaluation and spoken with a wide range of stakeholders, including educational institutions, the public and the people on our register.
