Nursing Associate


Trainee Nurse Associates

The Trainee Nursing Associate is a highly trained support role to deliver effective, safe and responsive nursing care in and across a wide range of health and care settings. Nursing Associates work independently, and with others, under the leadership and direction of a Registered Nurse within defined parameters, to deliver care in line with an agreed plan.

A nursing associate is not a substitute for a registered nurse. The intention is that by employing a nursing associate, who is registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) having completed an approved training course, it can free up the time of a registered nurse to focus on more complex clinical duties

Nursing associates will have a foundation degree and pre-registration training typically involves two years of higher education, including placements where services are provided at home, near to home and in hospital.
