New career framework for general practice and district nursing

A new education and career framework launched today by Health Education England sets out for the first time the specialist knowledge and skills needed to deliver and advance in district nursing and general practice nursing.

The District Nursing and General Practice Nursing Service education and career framework will underpin the shift from acute to primary and community care by setting out the standardised roles and responsibilities, as well as provide nurses with a career pathway.

It has frameworks for  district nursing and general practice nursing within one framework and outlines the career pathways for the professions, while setting out clearly the key responsibilities and roles at each level.
