NHS Education for Scotland



The toolkit is targeted at three key audiences:


Employers and service leads - to support consistent planning and decision-making regarding the development of such roles, where they may already exist and where they may need to be developed.

Education providers - to provide a focus for the development, provision and dissemination of programmes of educational development which meet the key elements of this role and match closely with the expectations and requirements of employers, commissioners and practitioners themselves.

Advanced Nurse Practitioners and those aspiring to such roles - to provide guidance and tools that allow practitioners to measure their own development, capabilities and role expectations against the benchmark for this role.
