In partnership with key stakeholders NIPEC facilitated a small Project Group to develop an Accredited Prior Learning Information fact sheet.


It is essential that Northern Ireland accelerates the development of nurses to meet the challenging demands of health care, in particular with the Transforming Your Care agenda (DHSSPS 2012), driving the transition of service delivery from predominantly acute-based to community settings. More nurses will be needed with skills in complex case management, advanced specialist practice knowledge, and the confidence to work independently in community rather than acute hospital settings. To meet this nursing workforce need the Chief Nursing Officer requested NIPEC to lead the development of an Advanced Practice Framework for Nursing across Northern Ireland.
