Your future nurses infographic

NHS Employers, October 2017
Until recently, the routes to developing registered nurses within the workforce have been limited, with the university degree being the main way to train this group of staff.  The introduction of the nursing degree apprenticeship gives a new opportunity for employers to train nurses, while the creation of the new nursing associate role can help to be a bridge between healthcare assistants and graduate registered nurses. This infographic provides a resource to support employers to make the most of the new and existing routes into nursing.

Skills for Health, March 2017

This framework, developed in partnership with Skills for Care and Health Education England, promotes greater collaboration between organisations in the health and care sectors and in the community. The framework sets out standards for staff education and training and classifies key skills and knowledge into three tiers, ranging from general end of life care awareness to the in-depth knowledge needed to care for and support an individual approaching the end of their life, and their family. A accompanying training pack has been developed to increase awareness and understanding of the importance of working together to support people at the end of their lives.
