Developing a nursing associate role forum

Are you a provider interested in or currently developing the nursing associate role? We hold a national forum where providers can get involved and share good practice to help support the development of the nursing associate role in social care. The group are currently working on the following approach:

  • Business case development – what do people need to know if they are considering supporting student nursing associates (SNA) direct entry, SNA apprenticeships/qualified nursing associates.
  • Supporting the workforce to understand the role – sharing examples of where the role is working well in the sector.
  • Increasing placements for nursing associates hosted in social care.
  • Supporting the development of the role in domiciliary care.

We're looking for provider representatives to sit on the forum and help shape this work, please email socialcarenursing@skillsforcare.org.uk to join.
