One of the recommendations within the General Practice Nursing Framework “Now and the Future” (2016) was the development of a career pathway encompassing a core competency framework to support the General Practice Nursing workforce. NIPEC is delighted to lead on this work with the establishment of a Steering Group, chaired by Mrs Maura Devlin MBE, Director of Nursing Down GP Federation.

This initiative aims to develop a career pathway to support the General Practice nursing workforce to enable the delivery of safe, effective, person-centred nursing care within General Practices across Northern Ireland.
