4 Foreword The UAE Nursing and Midwifery Council was established by Cabinet decree in 2009, under the direction of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Ruler of Dubai. The establishment of the Council reflects the government s commitment to nursing and midwifery with the knowledge that high quality nursing and midwifery care is essential for the health and well-being of the people of the UAE. The Council s mandate to regulate nursing and midwifery, promote and advance nursing and midwifery services and protect and promote the health and safety of the public based on the highest standards establishes the Council as an important regulatory and strategy setting body for nursing and midwifery. The Council board is focused on addressing nursing and midwifery from the perspectives of practice, licensure, education, and research. Standing Scientific Committees composed of stakeholder members from across the UAE are actively engaged in developing and implementing standards in all of these areas. It gives me great pleasure to introduce this report from the Council UAE Nursing and Midwifery Education Standards, the work of the Scientific Committee for Education. This report outlines standards to be used as the basis for nursing and midwifery education in the UAE. The standards set forth in this document are in line with leading international nursing and midwifery education accreditation bodies and emphasize the importance of technical and emotional competence, critical decision-making, collaboration, and leadership. These standards also emphasize the need for socializing nurses and midwives to engage in careers dedicated to the health of the public and to lifelong learning as a foundation for achieving excellence in their own practice. I am deeply grateful to the Council Board and the Scientific Committee for Education for making this report a reality; these standards are essential to unifying quality in nursing and midwifery education across the UAE and will serve as an important foundation for healthcare in the country. Her Royal Highness Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein President of the UAE Nursing and Midwifery Council UAE Nursing and Midwifery Council 3

5 Preface The UAE Nursing and Midwifery Council, as the national regulatory body for nursing and midwifery, is mandated to promote and protect the health of the public by establishing unified standards for regulation, education and practice. Recognizing the importance of building a workforce of nurses and midwives educated in the UAE, the Council Board has set education standards and accreditation among its top priorities. This report presents standards for nursing and midwifery educational programs in the UAE. These standards serve as the foundation for nursing and midwifery education program accreditation, a system of educational review that will be conducted in partnership with the Ministry of Higher Education and Research and other relevant organizations. We are grateful to the dedicated members of the Scientific Committee for Education and to all of the many contributors to this work. With this report we will be able to establish a coordinated approach toward advancing nursing and midwifery education in the UAE. The real Asset of any advanced nation is its people, especially the educated ones, and the prosperity and success of the people are measured by the standard of their education. Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan The late president of the UAE UAE Nursing and Midwifery Council 4

7 Introduction The UAE is undergoing rapid and dramatic advancements in the healthcare sector fueled by population growth and the changing demands of the population for healthcare services. In response, the UAE Nursing and Midwifery Council convened the Scientific Committee for Education and commissioned the development of a strategy to expand educational programs to prepare more nurses and midwives to serve the UAE population s needs. The Committee was also charged with developing an accreditation process, in partnership with the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MOHESR). The accreditation process will ensure all programs in the UAE meet unified standards. These standards were developed by representatives from all stakeholder organizations who collectively brought expertise about nursing and midwifery education, practice, research, and regulation from local, regional and international perspectives. The Committee selected a standards framework developed by the World Health Organization (WHO,2009) as its foundation and referenced standards for Midwifery Education established by the International Confederation of Midwives (ICM, 2010). The education standards were also completed in harmony with the nursing and midwifery UAE Scope of Practice for Registered Nurses and Midwives and Regulation (UAE NMC, 2012). These standards identify desired outcomes and attributes for graduates, with competencies required for successful transition from education to employment. Standards also specify program requirements for organization, curriculum development, partnerships, learning environment, faculty qualifications and support, program admissions and student support. Standards will be implemented and reviewed on a regular basis to ensure they keep pace with changes in education philosophy and trends both within the UAE and the region, as well as internationally. It is the intent of the Council, collaborating with the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research ( MOHESR) and other relevant stakeholders, to work with universities to assure the highest level of quality for nursing and midwifery programs in the UAE. The Council believes achieving success in this goal is essential to building a cadre of expert nurses and midwives to care for the people of the UAE. UAE Nursing and Midwifery Council 6

8 Nursing and Midwifery Definitions as Basis for Education Standards The UAE Nursing and Midwifery Council defined the role of and scope of practice for nurses and midwives practicing in the UAE. Role definitions and scopes were developed by the Council s Scientific Committee for Practice and published in the following documents. The scope of practice is the range of roles, functions, responsibilities and activities which a registered nurse and midwife are educated for, competent in and accountable for and authorized to perform. It defines the accountability and limits or boundaries of professional practice. Definition of Nursing A registered Nurse is a self-regulated healthcare professional who works autonomously and in collaboration with other healthcare providers within a determined scope of practice. Nursing encompasses autonomous and collaborative care of individuals of all ages, families, groups and communities, sick or well and in all settings. Nursing includes the promotion of health, prevention of illness, and the care of ill, disabled and dying people. Advocacy, promotion of a safe environment, research, participation in shaping health policy and in patient and health systems management, and education are also key nursing roles. (ICN,2010). Definition of Midwifery A midwife is a person who, having been regularly admitted to a midwifery educational program, duly recognized in the country in which it is located, has successfully completed the prescribed course of studies in midwifery and has acquired the requisite qualifications to be registered and/or legally licensed to practice midwifery. The midwife is recognized as a responsible and accountable professional who works in partnership with women to give the necessary support, care and advice during pregnancy, labor and the post-partum period, to conduct births on the midwife s own responsibility and to provide care for the newborn and the infant. This care includes preventative measures, the promotion of normal birth, the detection of complications in mother and child, the accessing of medical care or other appropriate assistance and the carrying out of emergency measures. The midwife has an important task in health counseling and education, not only for the woman, but also within the family and the community. This work should involve antenatal education and preparation for parenthood and may extend to women s health, sexual or reproductive health and child care. A midwife may practice in any setting including the community, hospitals, clinics or health units.
