Advanced Nurse Practitioners

NHS Education for Scotland has been commissioned by the Chief Nursing Officer Directorate at the Scottish Government to allocate funding to support education for an additional 500 Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs) over 4 years between 2017 and 2021. 

A service and education needs analysis was completed in July 2017. The ANP SNA~ENA tool is provided here for information only.

Year 1 funding to support education for an additional 500 ANP is being allocated to employing organisations in Nov/Dec 2017.  

District Nurse role

NHS Education for  Scotland is currently developing a CPD learning resource to support existing level 6 District Nurses to prepare for the refocussed role. 

Regional events are being held in Feb/Mar 2018 to support the District Nurse refocussed role. See attached flyer for dates, venues and booking. 

Funding to support District Nurses to undertake modules in Advanced Clinical Assessment Skills and V300 Prescribing is currently being allocated to employing organisations through the NHS Boards in Nov/Dec 2017.
