Nursing to become graduate entry

12 Nov 09

Following a recommendation from the Nursing and Midwifery Council, The Department of Health has announced that, from 2013, all new nurses in England will have to spend at least three years being trained to degree level.

The move will help nurses meet the increasingly complex needs of patients more safely and effectively, it said.

The extra one or two years of training needed for nurses to obtain a degree will include a focus on gaining experience in community health teams.

Health Minister for England Ann Keen said: "Nurses are the largest single profession within the health service, and are critical to the delivery of high quality healthcare. "By bringing in degree-level registration we can ensure new nurses have the best possible start to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

"Degree-level education will provide new nurses with the decision-making skills they need to make high-level judgements in the transformed NHS."
