When people consider entering the nursing professions, and even for nurse registrants themselves, it’s often difficult for them to get clear information on what additional competencies they need to enable them to make progress in their careers. This difficulty can be compounded by variation across the country in mental health nursing postgraduate education and training, coupled with inconsistent access to a formal dedicated career pathway.
To tackle this variation, Health Education England’s New Roles in Mental Health Programme commissioned Skills for Health to produce this national competency and career framework for mental health nurses across England. It provides a much-needed guide to sustain post-registration, postgraduate education and continuing professional development. It will also help those thinking about a career in nursing or healthcare to consider mental health nursing as a career choice or direction.
Fundamentally this framework sets a standard and offers the opportunity for practitioners to develop and evidence their knowledge and skills, enabling the highest standards of practice as well as providing a structure for career and role development within primary care. Commissioned by the NHS England GPN Ten Point Plan Team and Health Education England, development and delivery was led by Skills for Health with guidance from a project steering group which comprised key stakeholders including advanced clinical practitioners, NHS Trusts, Royal Colleges, professional bodies and patient representation.
Register your interest here to be notified of the upcoming launch of The Primary Care and General Practice Nursing Career and Core Capabilities Framework currently in development, led by Skills for Health and a steering group including advanced clinical practitioners, NHS Trusts, Royal Colleges, professional bodies and patient representation, which will support Health Education England to achieve the aims of the ten-point action plan – a standard and greater clarity on the scope of practice for nurses working within primary care and general practice settings.
