Standards for specialist community public health nurses

Standards of proficiency for specialist community public health nurses publication coverWe first published the Standards of proficiency for specialist community public health nurses (SCPHNs) in 2004. These standards set out both the proficiencies (the skills and knowledge a SCPHN needs), and the standards for education and training (how a university will train and educate SCPHN students).

To make the proficiencies clearer and more accessible for everyone, we’ve also published these as a stand-alone document, Standards of proficiency: SCPHNs.
