Voluntary standards for new practice nurses

The Queen’s Nursing Institute has published new voluntary standards of education and practice for nurses who are embarking on a career in general practice nursing.

The standards have been designed to provide an overview of expected best practice, standards and guidance for nurses at the beginning of the general practice nursing career pathway. The standards also aim to give guidance to education providers developing introductory general practice nurse programmes and specialist practitioner qualification (SPQ) programmes.
