RCN call for work on pre-registration education

The RCN has called for more work to determine the content of pre-registration education.

Commenting on the completion of the first phase of the NMC’s review of pre-registration nursing education, RCN chief executive and general secretary Dr Peter Carter said: ‘More work is needed to determine the content of pre-registration education in order that it forms a sound basis for post registration nursing practise and is fit for the future health care needs of patients and the public.’

The RCN backs UK pre-registration nursing education programmes at degree level and the need for a formalised preceptorship year following registration.
