Scottish Guidance on Advanced Nurse Practice

Developing and increasing the number of Advanced Nurse Practice roles is a significant element of the Scottish Government strategy to develop and retain talented healthcare professionals to support the integrated healthcare of the future. In response the Transforming Roles Advanced Practice Group was tasked by the Chief Nursing Officer for Scotland to provide strategic oversight, direction and governance to the development and transformation of Advanced Nurse Practitioner roles.

A number of papers have been developed to progress the CNOD Transforming Nursing, Midwifery and Health Professions’ (NMaHP) Roles
