|Future Nurse Future Midwife NMC Education Standards Northern Ireland (NI) Implementation.
In 2015 the NMC began to review and update the pre-registration Nursing and Midwifery standards. In May this year the NMC published the Future Nurse standards of proficiency for pre-registration education available at https://www.nmc.org.uk/standards/standards-for-nurses/standards-of-proficiency-for-registered-nurses/. The new Future Midwife proficiencies and standards are due to be consulted on imminently and are scheduled to be published by the NMC in 2019.
The new standards and proficiencies raise the ambition in terms of what’s expected of a nurse and midwife at the point of registration and will give nurses and midwives the knowledge and skills they need to deliver excellent care across a range of settings now and in the future.
The implementation of the Future Nurse Future Midwifery (FNFM) standards, which will commence in Northern Ireland from September 2020, has significant implications for the HSC system. In this context, the Chief Nursing Officer, Charlotte McArdle, asked NIPEC to lead a programme of work to support the Department of Health (DoH) in its oversight to introduce the new standards.
