NHS Education for Scotland

About Us

Advanced Clinical Practice is a dynamic and contemporary area of development throughout the Nursing, Midwifery and Health Professions (NMaHP) roles. This website was originally developed as a UK wide resource under the auspices of the Modernising Nursing Careers Programme and the site hosted by NHS Education for Scotland (NES) of the Chief Nursing Officer Directorate of the Scottish Government in 2008.

It has been supported by many enthusiastic and dedicated individuals, NHS Boards, Trusts and Organisations such as the Royal College of Nursing and the Association of Advanced Practice Educators over the years it has been in place.

The most recent update in 2018 has been made to streamline the content and reflect the current positioning of Advanced Practice.
