1 Nursing in Introduction Regulation of Nurses Title Field of Activity Training Post basic training EC Law Appendix 1 BASIC REGISTRATION NURSE TRAINING WITHIN THE EU Appendix 2 POST - REGISTRATION NURSE TRAINING WITHIN THE EU Appendix 3 Specialist nurse in anaesthetic care

2 Introduction In in addition to the general care nurse there is also an enrolled nurse that has three years secondary school level training and an auxiliary nurse with one year s secondary level training. The auxiliary nurse is likely to disappear as they are converting to enrolled nurses. Neither of these latter types of nurse are regulated. There is also a branch nurse, the nurse in diagnostic radiology (rontgensjukoterska) that is regulated by transitional legal measures. The rontgensjukoterska role is notavailable to the general care nurse. Regulation of Nurses The Swedish general care nurse is regulated by means of a requirement to be authorised and the title of nurse is also protected. The provisions regulating nursing are set out in the Act on professional activities within the health care system. 1 The law 1998: 531 in chapter 3 paragraph 2 deals with authorisation Paragraph 2 Title One who has, in accordance with what is stated in the table below, 2 graduated from university or has had education and, when its needed, fulfilled practised duty shall, after application, obtain authorisation for the profession The provisions on the protection of title are set out in paragraph five Protection of professional title Paragraph 5 A professional title stated in paragraph 2 (protected professional title) is only allowed to be used by an individual who 1 Act no. 531 of Sjukstköterska = general care nurse

3 according to that paragraph either has authorisation for the profession or practices stated. All nurses in thus are general care nurses and must register with the National Board of Health and Welfare. The nurse in diagnostic radiology does not currently have a protected title, though it is planned to be introduced in The activities of the diagnostic radiology nurse are not available to the general care nurse. Field of Activity The scope of nursing activity is not legally defined but the National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen) has issued general recommendations describing the skills required of the nurse in various fields of nursing. The recommendations of the National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen) are set out in general guidelines. 3 The post basic courses for nurses are not regulated by national law (except for midwives). The practice of the specialist activities are not regulated either in law. 4 Essentially the employment market sorts out the demand for specialised nurses. Nurses may undertake studies in radiology diagnostic nursing. Training 3 See that for anaesthetic nurses in appendix 2 4 The Ministry of Education has plans to regulate this, but they are not yet ready.

4 In the academic year follows a two term system. One academic year of full time studies (40 weeks) gives 40 points. The requirements of most firstdegree programmes vary between 120 and 160 points. The classic types of specialist are set out in the appendix 1. The details found there are from the UMEA University programmes. They are broadly similar, but not identical elsewhere in the other universities. Post basic training The highlighted 5 specialised post basic courses include: - primary health care - paediatrics - opthormology and orthoptics - anistheology - intensive care - operating room - psychiatric - geriatrics - radiology - oncology treatment and nursing Colleges also provide courses in health administration teaching and research training. There is a plan by the Ministry of Education to legally regulate specialist nursing by protecting the title. However this is the responsibility of the Ministry of Education and it is not certain or known when the new regulations may be presented. They are not expected in The Committee of Senior Officials on Public Health in their document on profession of nurses. Ref FVA/pc j:/csp/mono/inf-en/ XV/E/8328/94-EN

5 EC Law As there are no legally defined and protected specialist nurses no especial difficulties arise. The nurse in diagnostic radiology is subject to Directive 89/48/EEC.
