Nursing Associates: a New Addition to the Nursing Workforce (NHS England / HEE)

Plugging gaps in the nursing workforce supply, with new ways of working:

“The Nursing Associate role is part of developing this contemporary workforce and will work under the direction of a fully qualified Registered Nurse (RN). The Nursing Associate is not a RN but will undertake some of the duties that a RN currently undertakes, enabling the RN to spend more time on the assessment and care associated with both complex needs and advances in treatments. …the Nursing Associate will have the training and skills to bridge the gap between what Health Care Assistant colleagues routinely do and the practice that is undertaken by a RN”.

Eleven test sites have been chosen to deliver training:

  1. St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
  2. Whittington Health NHS Trust.
  3. Bart’s Health NHS Trust.
  4. Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust.
  5. Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Trust.
  6. Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
  7. Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust.
  8. Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children Foundation Trust.
  9. Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
  10. Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust.
  11. Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust.
