1 Appendix 5 Academic and professional qualifications currently in place for practitioners nursing and midwifery Nursing and Midwifery are regulated professions. The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) registers nurses, midwives and specialist community public health nurses upon successful completion of an approved programme of education and training, and on attainment of specified standards of proficiency 1, conduct, performance and ethics 2. Approved programmes are subject to periodic quality monitoring. Programmes leading to registration as a nurse or midwife are currently at a minimum level of diploma of higher education (but almost all midwifery programmes are now at first degree level). Following a recent review of pre-registration nursing education the NMC made a policy decision to move to degree level entry for nurses. A date has yet to be set for transition to the new standard. Programmes leading to registration as a specialist community public health nurse - which are open only to individuals who hold registration as a nurse or midwife - are at a minimum level of first degree, however a number of education providers offer Masters level preparation for registration as a specialist community public health nurse. A list of approved programmes is annexed. The NMC acknowledges that all nurses and midwives have a role to play in promoting the health of the public but that only a proportion will work at a level where they can promote change by working in partnership with a wide range of agencies, making decisions that influence whole populations. This distinction is encapsulated in the standards of proficiency for the specialist community public health part of the register. The NMC makes it clear that this part of the register is not about job titles 3 but the competencies and skills to work with disadvantaged groups to address health inequalities and promote public health. The standards of proficiency for entry to the specialist community public health part of the register are grouped in four domains; these are elaborated by ten principles, each illustrated by a number of statements indicating the activities or competences each principle implies. This overview needs to be considered in the context of the publication in its entirety, particularly the guiding principles and standards sections concerning the balance of theory and practice, curriculum content and assessment. The NMC s formulation does not lend itself to direct mapping to the proposed standards for registration for public health practitioners and the NMC standards imply practice that equates to a higher level of the Public Health Skills and Career Framework (probably level 6) than envisaged by the proposed standards for registration for public health practitioners. Nevertheless, in broad terms the standards of proficiency map to the proposed standards for registration for public health practitioners as illustrated in the table below. 1 Nursing and Midwifery Council, 2004, Standards of proficiency for pre-registration nursing education (02.04); Standards of proficiency for pre-registration midwifery education (03.04); and Standards of proficiency for specialist community public health nurses (04.04), London, NMC. 2 Nursing and Midwifery Council, 2008, The Code: Standards of conduct, performance and ethics for nurses and midwives, (Approved by Council December 2007) London, NMC. 3 In the past the title health visitor referred both to a job and to registration status.

2 NMC SCPHN UKPHR Domain Principle PH Practitioner Standards Search for health needs Surveillance and assessment of the 1,2 population s health and wellbeing Stimulation of awareness of Collaborative working for health and wellbeing 9,12 health needs Working with, and for, communities to improve 9,13 health and wellbeing Influence on policies affecting Developing health programmes and services 4,8,9,12, health and reducing inequalities Policy and strategy development and 3,8 implementation to improve health and wellbeing Research and development to improve health 3,4,5 and wellbeing Facilitation of healthenhancing Promoting and protecting the population s 9,10,12 activities health and wellbeing Developing quality and risk management 5,6,10,11 within an evaluative culture Strategic leadership for health and wellbeing 9,13,15 Ethically managing self, people and resources to improve health and wellbeing 14,15,16.17 The prospect of dual registration (with the NMC and UKPHR) may be particularly appealing to nurses or midwives who do not hold registration with the NMC as a specialist community public health nurse, but whose careers and educational development have taken them into public health roles or whose work has a substantial public health focus. However the standards of proficiency to be met by those seeking registration as a nurse or midwife would not in themselves satisfy the full range of proposed standards for registration as a public health practitioner.
